News From Your Library

Spring is here and so is the rainy season. Curl up with a good book and keep dry! We just refreshed our rotating collection and they’re ready for checkout. For those not familiar with our rotating collection, we get a new shipment of about 450 books 4 times a year from SCKLS (South Central Kansas Library System) to put up on our shelves of books and audios that keeps our collection fresh. Ask about them next time you come in and maybe you’ll find something that’s right for you!
Due to conflicts in scheduling our preschool storytimes have been suspended until June 3rd when we begin our summer reading programs. The puppet ladies will be here on the 17th to entertain the kids with another wonderful story. We hope to see you here!

With Easter coming up on the 20th the library will not be open so our staff can spend the day with their families. Books can still be dropped off at the book drop on the North side of the building near the awning.
