News & Announcements:
** The Library will be closed Saturday, Dec. 23 through Wednesday Dec. 27 for Christmas **
Gentle Reads Book Club coming soon!
Do you enjoy authors like Debbie Macomber, Jan Karon, Adriana Trigiani or Karen Kingsbury? Then this might be the book club for you! Join us each month as we share books, food, and fellowship with the Gentle Reads Book Club. Learn more and let us know if you are interested here.
What’s Coming Up:
Holiday Open House | Tuesday, December 5, 5-7 PM
Kick off the holiday season with a family trip to the library.
This annual event is designed for all ages to enjoy! We will have hot cider & cookies, holiday crafts, a dramatic reading of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” gift basket drawings and more!
Drop by any time between 5 and 7pm to enjoy the festivities.
Food For Fines Continues in December | Last Day – December 22
Our local food pantries need our help during the holiday season. Bring in a can or dry good to donate and we’ll waive up to $3 in late fees. Donate 3 or more cans or boxes to “clean your plate” and get all late fees waived, no limits.
Fine forgiveness is applied per card, not per family — so if the kids have late fees on their cards, they’ll need to bring their own food donations to cover them.
Food drive items cannot be applied toward fees for lost or damaged library materials.
After-School Activities | Thursdays, 4:00 – 4:30 PM
Join us for some after-school STEAM fun! In December we’re going all out for the holidays: explore the symmetry of snowflakes, develop safety gear for Santa, reindeer games & more! Intended for elementary/middle school students.
No After-school activities on Dec. 21 or 28.
Homeschool Activities | Third Friday each month, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Homeschool families are invited to join us every third Friday at 10:00 AM for STEAM activities and the chance to meet other area homeschoolers.
Toddler Story time | Wednesdays at 10:00 AM – Kids 3 and under and their caregivers are invited to come enjoy stories, fingerplays, and songs.
Pre-K Story time | Tuesdays & Wednesdays at 11:00 AM – These story times, geared for 4-5 year olds, features stories, crafts and activities.
Each month, we are going to shine a spotlight on one of our wonderful staff members to give our library community a chance to get to know a little bit more about them. In December, we are highlighting Jared! You can stop by the library any time this month to see Jared’s Staff Picks on display.
Jared is the newest addition to our library, and he brings a love of history to our team along with a diverse taste in fiction. When he’s not reading, Jared enjoys board games and movies.
