Do you like to write but are unsure how to get your work published? On Thursday, Oct. 22, local author, Mary Jansen, will hold a session here at the library to help answer your questions. This free, informal class begins at 7pm and is open to all ages. In it, Mary will outline the steps she’s taken when having books published and will share tips and hints you may also be able to use.
It’s time for the St. Joseph’s Hospital Fall Health Fair. For more information or a registration form, go to http://www.stjoebreese.com
The library will be closed Monday, Sept. 7 for Labor Day.
With the new school year beginning, we are once again enjoying visits by classes from Germantown Elementary and Siblings Day Care. We really do love reading to the kids and helping them find just the right book. If you are a student (or have a student) and are wondering how to find Accelerated Reader books at a certain level, thinking about trying eBooks or would like to request items from other Illinois libraries, please let us know if you have questions. We’re always glad to help spread the joy of reading!
This Saturday, August 15, the library will be represented in the Spassfest Parade by several of our library trustees. Watch for the pickup truck with Germantown Library signs on it and be ready to catch some of the goodies we’ll be tossing. Hope to see you there!
As a new school year starts, we’d like to ask all parents to be sure to let us know if you have a new email address, have dropped your home phone, moved, etc. We need up-to-date records to be sure we can reach you if your child has a late book or we’ve received a book that your child requested. Just email us at email@example.com or stop in and give us any changes. Thanks!
We recently completed shifting our entire adult collection, so if you have trouble locating your favorite author, just ask and we’ll be glad to help. We’ve weeded titles that weren’t being read and donated them to St. Joseph’s Hospital for their book sale. This allowed us to get most of our adult books off the top and bottom-most shelves, so they’ll be much easier to see and reach. We hope you’ll enjoying browsing the collection even more now!
The library will be closed Tuesday, July 28 for the St. Boniface Church Picnic. See you there!
