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.

This could mean you…. we meet third Monday of the month from 7:00 to 8:00. Since the third Monday of February is a holiday we will be meeting on the 2nd Monday (Feb 8th) to discuss the best selling novel by Anthony Doerr…All the Light We Cannot See.
“A novel to live in, learn from, and feel bereft over when the last page is turned.” — Booklist (we have 6 copies of the book still available)

Join us on Thursday February 4th. From 2:30 – 4:00 for some adult coloring. We will provide everything just come and enjoy.

Lego Club starting up Monday, December 28th 3:30 to 5:00… Come join us at the Ricker Library and have fun building different Lego sets. This will be be on every 4th Monday of each month. Please come in to sign up or call the library at 998-4390. Please note this is for boys or girls at least 6 years old (due to small parts). We will provide the space and the Legos. Kids just need to come their ideas and imaginations.

Please return your books that are recently due back. During the month of December Ricker Memorial Library will excuse overdue fines on currently borrowed (but late) materials in exchange for non-perishable food items. Bring your overdue books, tapes, videos, DVDs, whatever to the Circulation Desk along with your contribution of packaged, non-perishable foods and we will wipe the slate clean. The entire community will benefit from your generosity. Thank you

Everyone is encouraged to contribute, even if you don’t have overdue library books.
