Join us April 9-14 to celebrate National Library Week! Find something new and interesting to bring home to read or watch and enjoy. We’ll have sweet treats for everyone who stops in and you can see all the beautiful pictures our young patrons have colored this year.
Don’t forget to turn your coloring contest entries in here at the library by closing at 4pm on April 4. We’ll be choosing a winner from each class and those lucky children will each get a special prize. (coloring sheets were given to children in grades kindergarten through 4th grade)
Germantown Library is now accepting applications for the position of part-time Library Clerk. The position requires the ability to work a flexible schedule including some daytimes, evenings and Saturday mornings, for a total of 15-18 hours per week. Applicants must be 18 and hold a high school diploma or the equivalent. We’re looking for someone who is dependable, friendly, able to work independently and committed to high quality customer service. Basic computer skills are a must; prior library experience is not necessary, but would be a plus. Stop in soon to pick up an application or ask about the job. You can also call us at 523-4820 for more information. Applications must be returned by April 11.
Well, it’s that time of year – tax time! If you are in need of tax forms, we have them. No charge. We also have booklets with tax tables and directions for filling out the forms. If you are in need of Federal or State tax forms, just stop in and pick them up.
Once again St. Joseph’s Hospital is offering its Spring Health Fair at several convenient locations. The first will be Wed. March 7 at the Breese KC hall. There will also be Health Fair dates at the Carlyle KC, the Trenton 1st UMC and finally on April 18 at the Germantown American Legion. If you’d like to pre-register, we have forms available here at the library.
Do you have an hour or two, once a week or once a month, to spare? Would you like to help out your friendly, local library? We are in need of more volunteers and would be happy to train you. Please call 523-4820 or stop in and speak to Joan.
Are you always on the lookout for new titles or authors to read? Check out the “Book Lover’s Links” tab just below the picture on our website. Just click on that tab and get some great URLs to find new reads. We’ve recently added 2 that we really like – http://www.fantasticfiction.com and http://www.bookreporter.com. Try them out.

The library will be closed on Monday, February 19 in honor of Presidents’ Day.
We’ll have a story, snacks, a video, and crafts and games for all to enjoy. This event is free and open to all young patrons and their families. We’ve heard there might even be an appearance by a very special rabbit, so you won’t want to miss this!!
Beginning Feb. 1 you can come to the library to learn to knit.
