New Floor Pillows

Thanks to the generosity of the Germantown Kernel Nut Club, we have colorful new floor pillows for the children’s area.  Our old, much loved ladybug, turtle and alligator were over 20 years old and showing wear.  A Nut Club member noticed and offered to request funds from the group to buy new ones.  The request was approved, new pillows were ordered and we all love them!

New Board Members Urgently Needed

The April election is fast approaching and the library will have 3 open seats on its board of directors.  Would you or someone you know be interested in serving a 4 year term on this fun and friendly board?  We meet once a month at the library.  A candidate for trustee does not have to be a regular library user, but does need to live in the library district (same boundaries as the Germantown Elementary School District).  There is a simple form to be completed to show intent to run as a write-in candidate.  We have the form available here or you can just go to the county clerk’s office and complete it.  FORMS ARE DUE BY FEBRUARY 1!  Please consider running for a seat on the board.  For more information stop in or call the library at 523-4820 and ask to speak to Director Joan Young.  Thanks for considering.

Girl Scouts book drive


Thanks, Germantown Girl Scouts!  These hard working gals held a book drive and donated all the books, magazines and DVDs they collected to the library.  Then they spent Saturday morning helping us sort books, check for duplicates on the shelves and in the online catalog and generally learning what happens to a book from the time it comes into the library until it’s ready to go on the shelf.  We received many, many great adult, junior and children’s books.  The items we couldn’t use will be donated to St. Joseph’s hospital for their annual book sale.  But before sending them on to the hospital, the girls and their leaders had some fun building a Christmas tree for the library out of the books!  Stop in and see it when you can.  It looks very festive and after the holidays, all those books will be donated to the hospital.  We thank the girls, their leaders and all who donated books to help our library continue to grow.
