What's New
Board Meeting Change

The May 2016 meeting of the Library's Board of Trustees has been changed from the second Tuesday to the third Tuesday, May 17. Time and location remain at 7:00 p.m. @ the library. This was done to accommodate a need to have a quorum for the meeting.

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.

Excuse our mess

For the next couple of months, the original library building will be undergoing a bit of updating. Removal of the plants from the Veteran's Memorial Garden, and the original entry's concrete slab have already taken place, so beware the uneven ground in front. Beginning this week, windows and the old door, plus original brick and mortar will bee removed, and new windows and bricking will take place as weather permits.

Once the building is completed the memorial garden plants will be replaced along with new ones to fill in where the slab was. Weather permitting, all should be accomplished in time for the annual Memorial Day celebration.

Inside, the children's areas are moved about to allow for window work. Just ask for help if you cannot find what you are looking for.

Thanks for your understanding. We're always working to better serve you.

Library Policies

Watch for a new link coming your way, soon. We are working on getting those policies which directly affect library users posted to our web site.

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.
