The evening’s activities will include a relaxing environment of soft lighting, mellow music, simple crafts and warm drinks to help set the cozy mood. Simple crafting materials and coloring utensils and books will be provided. Feel free to bring your own crafting supplies and ideas. Drop in. Program for adults only.

New Website Coming Soon!
We are transitioning to a new website format and a new look will be coming soon! Please be patient as we update everything. It there is something on our website that you cannot seem to find, please let us know! Thank you for your help!

Google Chrome Computers for Patron Use
Last week, 10 of the public patron computer stations were updated with Google Chrome Computers. Instead of signing up at a reservation station, just sit down at any available station and enter your library bar code number. You will still receive one hour per day per person.

Also, we now offer wireless printing! Print from your phone or other wireless device. Printing charges will apply and print jobs will still be released at the print station. The library clerks will be happy to assist you if you need help.
Our Vision: We envision the Saint Peter Public Library as a place where all people can gather and are welcome. We imagine our library as a place to create opportunities for lifelong learning which will strengthen our community.
