News From Your Library
We are moving things around again. This time it’s in the children’s section. We are getting rid of 230 VHS movies and moving the holiday and non-fiction books around. We still have a selection of VHS movies but only a quarter as many as we use to. We are selling the VHS tapes for $.25 each if you would like to come in and look at them. We have also gotten rid of the board book bins and have replaced them with a cute little shelf that shows off the books better than the bins. Come in and discover buried board books you never knew we had!
As a reminder, we have gotten rid of the book drop out in the driveway. The new book drop is on the north side of the building near the overhang. There is a slot for books and a slot for media such as movies and audio books. You will have to exit your car to get to the slots on the building. Another reminder is that the overhang has been deemed a no parking area for patrons. The inner lane is needed for the drive through drop box lane and the outer lane is staff parking only. Please do not park under the overhang even in bad weather. You will be asked to move or ticketed.
The Puppet Ladies will be making up their missed production of “A House for Hermit Crab” on March 13th since the weather prevented the February performance. We welcome you to come on down at 10:30 AM and join us in the fun, toddlers and preschoolers are welcome too. They will be handing out a take home activity after the play.
On the 20th the library will not be opening until 1 PM. The library will be open from 1-7 PM on this day. We will not be having preschool storytime this week. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
