Our new Tech Center reservation system is coming – Thursday, June 9th! A library card is all you need to get checked into a computer; easy peasy. If you don’t yet have a library card, you should – they’re FREE for all Clay County residents:)
In preparation, our Tech Center will be closed to the public ALL DAY on Wednesday, June 8th. We apologize for the inconvenience, but sincerely hope all patrons will be pleased with the new system.
Tug Collective arrives tomorrow, June 3rd, with their traveling project ‘Who Eats at Taco Bell?”. Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar, Co-Artistic Directors, will ceremoniously bike into town and make their way to the library, where they will set up their ‘Taco Encampment’.
During their stay, they will make tacos with people, prompt dialogue, exhibit interactive art, and invite innovative forms of engagement around the question: What is it going to take for us to truly live inter-culturally?
Join us, and the Tug Collective, for Tacos and conversation Saturday morning at the Vermillion Area Farmer’s Market, at the Platz, 9 – 12.
We will follow that up with a bike jaunt out to Spirit Mound, to visit this locally infamous spot along the Lewis & Clark Trail. We will depart from the Library at 2 pm. All are welcome!
Help us celebrate the start of another great Summer Reading Program, ‘On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!’ Program participants of all ages are welcome to drop by and join in the fun – pick up your program packet, race through our obstacle course, enjoy some crafts, bounce in the bouncy castle, and enjoy some cool treats.
