Looking for people to come join the “Friends”.  We meet once a month and discuss ways that we can support the library with various projects and programs.  Some of the ways we have supported the library:  purchased lego sets, new pull down shades, new curtains, movie night, rolling cart for equipment to show movies, craft materials for the preschool program, and reduced pass at the Gray Animal Park.  Sponsored the gift baskets and yard sales to help fund these projects.

Next time:   July 26 at 1:30 to 3:00.    We have all the cribbage boards and cards to play with.


Grades 5th – 8th      3:30 – 4:30

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!!

Days are getting shorter…more time for reading?? We have different books added to the downstairs book shelves almost every week.. Where can you get a bargain of $3.00 for a bag of books…not even at a yard sale! And remember at the same time you are helping the Library.

Come join us for Lego Club. We will be starting Monday in the fall. The time is 3:30 to 4:45. 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.
