Outside the Lines is Here

We are officially Outside the Lines this week!  Don’t miss these two special events:

On Friday, September 16th at 7 pm we will host our next Books & Brews event as a meet & greet ‘Happy Hour’ with our new Library Director, Daniel Burniston!  We invite community members to our ‘Beer Garden’ – in the garden behind the library.  Adults aged 21 and up only, of course.  There will be live music, refreshments, a limited selection of craft beers to sample, and participants are encouraged to bring their own favorites.

And on Saturday, September 17th at 7 pm, join us for our first ever ‘Outside the Library Drive-In Movie Night’ in our parking lot! Patrons of all ages are welcome to view the new, live-action ‘Jungle Book’ with us, and munch on popcorn.  Bring your own chairs and beverages.

These events are a part of Outside the Lines, a global initiative designed to reintroduce libraries to their local communities. From Sept. 11-17, 2016, organizations will host events and campaigns worldwide designed to get people thinking – and talking – about libraries in a whole new way.

Adult programming is Long Overdue…

Things are really picking up around here with the impending return of Children’s and Adult programming!  Our Adult programming will return on Tuesday, September 6th, with a very special session of our Long Overdue series.
We are excited to host the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Clay and Yankton Counties as she provides the community with an overview of the work they are busy doing in our communities, and ways for you to be involved.  Takes place in the Kozak Community Room at 7 pm.
