This year’s Summer Reading Program has been quite the adventure!
There are, unfortunately, only a few events left before the program ends. However, we have had so much fun with everyone involved that we would like to invite you to a Backyard Bash here at the library as the finale for a great program.
Join us at 1 p.m. on Monday, July 27 for an afternoon of pizza, games and prizes and help us end this program with a bang! All we ask is that you alert the library staff ahead of time to reserve your spot for the afternoon; other than that, just show up hungry for food and fun and we’ll take care of the rest.
Thanks for a great summer, everyone. We look forward to seeing you here!
Join us at the library for an artistic and political open house!
From 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 20, we encourage all patrons and community members to stop by the library for an open democracy studio. In preparation for the June 30 Special Election, we will be providing two button machines, various crafting materials, sample ballots and other information regarding the election. Design your own buttons, banners and signs in an environment that will cater to your freedom of creative and political expression!
Have any questions? Call or email the library for more information.
