Librarian's Corner

I don’t remember how old I was when I first learned how to crochet, but it’s a skill that I’ve put to use fairly frequently over the years. I’ve gotten pretty good at scarves, and have been known to cobble together a stuffed animal or two when feeling inspired (and possessing sufficient yarn).

The Library will be closed on Thursday, November 24th & Friday, November 25th, in observance of Thanksgiving. We will be open on Saturday, November 26th. The book drop & sale in the front vestibule are available 24/7 for your convenience.

From November 16 - December 17, we'll be partnering with Starting Point to host a giving tree at the Library. Stop in to see what items are being sought; take an ornament with an item, and bring that item in to place under the tree.

A Bit of Housekeeping

At the beginning of January, we will be deleting all patron records which expired in 2018. If you haven't renewed your library account in a while, make sure to call the library before the end of the year.
