We have some exciting new changes in the library. We have a new laptop bar at the front of our building. It is equipped with electrical outlets and internet plug ins for those whose laptops can’t access our wifi (we do not provide the cords). The couch and coffee table has been moved over near the paperback book section. We are moving around books and within the next few months will be rearranging the book sections so watch for your favorite books to move.

We received a new shipment of rotating books to refresh the choices. For those who don’t know about our rotating books, we receive 4 times a year a shipment of 400 books from our friends at the South Central Kansas Library System in South Hutchinson. These items are a selection of young adult, junior fiction, children’s, adult fiction, adult and children nonfiction, large print, and even a few audio books. At the end of their time with us they get boxed up and shipped back as the new shipment arrives to take their place.
