News From Your Library
It’s time to sign up for summer reading!! Come join us for a fun summer filled with books and entertainment. We have added Tanganyika Wildlife passes to our list of fun ticket prize list. They’re a little added incentive this year for those who complete our summer reading bookmarks. A complete list of passes and rules will be included in your summer reading packets which can be picked up on June 1st at the library.
Our events calendar is back up and going on our website. If you visit our online catalog, on the right hand side of the page is our calendar of events. Days that are underlined on the calendar are days we will be having some event at the library. You can click on the day in order to look at the activity that is planned for that day. Note: Many of our programs have age limits on them. You will need to know what category you fit into and only go to the programs set up for your age group unless it is a “family” event where everyone is welcome. There are several YA programs we will be hosting this summer that the teens will need signed permission slips in order to participate. We MUST have those before they will be allowed to participate in the activities. Those will be available closer to time for the event to take place.
The library board has voted to continue the Sunday hours, we will not be discontinuing them as we originally thought. We will continue to be open on Sundays from 1 pm – 4 pm.
Preschool storytimes have been suspended until June 4th when they will resume as summer reading storytimes and have summer reading themed books and activities. They will change to Tuesday mornings at 10:30 am instead of the Thursday mornings we have been having them on over the winter months.
'With summer approaching and more activities and vacations going on we understand that schedules can get hectic. Library books don’t have to go hand and hand with large fines. We are happy to assist you in keeping your library books fine free. You’re welcome to call us and renew your books or you can go online and renew them yourselves. In the yellow box on this page are instructions on how to access your account and renew your own books. Remember: the preset password that we make when you received your card is library and you must put this password in before you can make your own password.
