What's New
Memorial Day Closing

The library will be closed on Saturday, May 28 in honor of our Veterans. Don't forget the Memorial Day service which begins at Malta United Methodist Church followed by parade to library with placing of wreath at the Memorial Garden.

Excuse our mess

For the most part, Phase IV of the library's renovation project is completed on the outside. More inside work is left to be accomplished, so we are still in a bit of a mess. Work needed to be stopped for summer reading, but is scheduled to be completed in September.

Thanks for your understanding. We are working to make it possible to give everyone the best service possible.

Adult Coloring Club

Our adult coloring club gatherings have been very successful. The evenings are stress-free and filled with great conversation, fun, and tea/pastries. This program is open to all adults (strict enforcement of no kids) No registration necessary; simply join us when you're able. First Thursday of each month beginning at 6:30. Next get together is May 5. Hope you can join us; we continue to add more tables.

Monday Closings Extended Through Summer

It is with a heavy heart that library trustees and staff must pass on the unhappy news that the library will not open on Mondays this coming summer. Due to loss of some funding, rising expenses, and unexpected building maintenance costs, cuts need to be made this year. After much consideration, we felt the easiest thing to do was to remain closed for Mondays (keeping consistent with the rest of the year) rather than cut the services you have come to expect. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Peggy Wogen, Library Director, in person or at 815-825-2525.
