Last Storytime til Autumn

Wed. May 29 at 11am we’ll hold our last pre-k storytime until September. If you have children ages 1-5, bring them to the library that day for stories, games and fun involving all kinds of bubbles! Then be sure to sign up any youngsters ages 4-12 for our summer reading program, “It’s Showtime at Your Library!” Our first event is June 15 and kids can read on their own time this summer to earn all kinds of great prizes.

May is for Rae

All fines and fees collected during the month of May will be donated to Rally for Rae. So this is the time to pay for those lost books or late fees and get your accounts cleared up! You might want to make copies, fax something or get some keepsakes laminated…it all goes to Rae! Even if you owe nothing, any donations will be accepted.

If you can join us, please come to the library on March 27 and bring the kiddos in your life ages 1-5.

New Year, New Roof

After nearly 25 years under our original roof, with several hail storms, small leaks and a few replaced shingles, it was time for a new roof on the library. We think it looks pretty good. Here’s to at least 25 more years!
