Library Newsletter - August 2019
Library Hours and Services: The library will be CLOSED on Monday, September 2 for Labor Day. During the first two weeks of September, we'll be replacing more carpet, first on the lower level, then in the Children's room. This will mean limited access to the collection and to services, including public computers and study rooms. Check our website and social media for updates!
Download a bingo card and cross off boxes for reading, programs, and more!
Turn in your entry to win prizes by August 31 even if you haven't completed the whole card!
