Special Hours
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as you celebrate with your family and friends! In observance of the Christmas holiday the library will be closed ALL day on Saturday, December 24 and will remain closed until Tuesday, December 27 when we resume normal hours at 10 AM. On Saturday, December 31, the library will close at 2 PM and will remain closed until Tuesday, January 3.
December means Winter Holidays! We've been preparing special events, like a Christmas Trivia Night, and our famous children's daytime New Year's Eve party. It is certainly a busy time of year, so remember you can check our website and Facebook page, or see our bulletin board of monthly activities in the library's main entrance to see everything we have planned. 
I'm really proud of how our library supports you - our community. It feels even more important this time of year. In the spirit of giving, we will be donating all the proceeds from our perpetual used book sale in the month of December to the United Way of the Bradford Area. It's one small way we can give back as a community. And, if you haven't stopped in for a while, there's no time like the present!  

Merry Everything!
