Terri has been with the Alvan Bolster Ricker Memorial Library for 20 years; and she has also been selected the 2016 Person of the Year for the Town of Poland. We are truly happy for Terri and wish her many more years with the Library.

Thanks to a generous patron … we now have a new selection of older movies for you to take out and there are a still a bunch of them to process. All you will need to furnish is the popcorn!!

Come join us for our second year of Lego Club. We will be starting Monday September 26th. The time is 3:30 to 5:00. You can choose a Lego set to build or create your own structure with our Lego Creative Sets. We are looking forward to seeing you.

Please be aware some patrons are returning books with wet, bent pages and dirty covers. Please try to take extra good care of the books so they can be enjoyed by everyone. We will need to start charging patrons for damaged books and we are sure that no one wants this to happen.

If you have any NEW movies that are just sitting on a shelf collecting dust, I know just the place they would be welcomed. The Library does not buy movies.. all our movies are donations. We have not gotten any NEW movies in a long time..so it would be greatly appreciated to get some more current movies. Thank you.

We have a great selection of these books which are really expensive to buy. These audios are checked when they are returned and many are coming back dirty with finger prints and lots of scratches. They can be washed but the scratches on them cannot be fixed. Please be careful when taking them out so that we all can enjoy listening to these stories with no skipping CDs. Please do not attempt to clean them yourselves because they are delicate. Thank you for your understanding.
