News & Announcements:
** The library will be closed Monday, September 4 in observance of Labor Day. **
Librarian in Lockup! Miss Jess will be going behind bars on September 20th to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Help us raise her “bail money” by donating online at http://www2.mda.org/goto/jessicaarnold.
Kids and adults in our community are living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away everyday freedoms like walking, talking, hugging and even breathing.
By donating to her “bail,” you can help Miss Jess raise money to bring strength and hope to the individuals and families in our community living with these life-threatening diseases.
What’s Coming Up:
Gibsonville Rocks | Saturday, September 16, 9:00-11:30 AM — We will be painting rocks to “hide” around Gibsonville and brighten everyone’s day. We will provide paint and rocks, but encourage everyone to bring their own rocks from home, too! The more bright spots of color and kindness we can create the better. Learn more about the painted “kindness rocks” project at http://thekindnessrocksproject.com/

See you then! Intended for elementary/middle school students.
