Help Us Decorate Our Holiday Tree!

Are decorated trees just for the Christmas season? We don’t think so here at the library! We’ll be keeping our tree up on the first floor and will be decorating it for each major holiday. We encourage all children to express their creative sides through crafting Valentine’s Day themed ornaments, bringing them to the library, and hanging them on our community holiday tree. We can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Happy New Year!

The library will be closed New Year’s Eve (Friday) through the following Monday (1/3/22). Starting January 4th (Tuesday) of the new year, we’ll be right back to our normal hours of operation.
From all of us here at the library, we wish everyone a happy and healthy 2022!

Book Bingo!

We had a great crowd for Book Bingo at the library this evening and we hope that all those who attended were able to find a book to take home that was right up their alley. Keep an eye out for future Book Bingo dates into January and beyond!

Holiday Cheer at the Library!

Check out our festive holiday decorations placed all throughout the library! We would also like to thank Lisa Eccker for her lovely paintings in the front windows that will undoubtedly spread cheer to all those who pass by. Also included here are some snapshots of our latest Preschool Storytime & Movement program where we read a book about snowmen, sang songs about the jingling bells on Santa’s sleigh, and even crafted some friendly snowmen for everyone to take home!
