16th Annual Library Open House

It's that time again...Library Open House Time! Join us Satruday, January 22 from 10 am to 1 pm for our 16th Annual Open House. The theme for our 2022 open house is "Yes, We're Open!" The open house is the perfect time to come to the library and find out all the new ways the library is "open!" We have added a new digital collection of books, audiobooks, music and more through Hoopla. There is the ability to apply for a digital card online. We have safe spaces in the library to hang out, use our computers, browse our collections, and do projects. We offer crafts and activities to go. Curbside pickup or visiting the bookmobile is always an option. We have digital resources to learn a new language, and to learn crafting tips and  tricks. Learn all about it at our open house where we'll have information on how to use our resources, information on our weekly and monthly programming, and a lunch you can take to go! There will also be crafts, activities and prizes along the way. If you don't want to participate at the library, give us a call or send us an email and pick up an Open House bag to go.

January Book Discussion

For the month of January we will be discussing the psychological thriller Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy. This book follows a newly married woman whose life is turned upside down when her husband goes missing. Molloy's deft ability to subvert norms culminates in the kind of stunning twist that is becoming her trademark, Goodnight Beautiful is a thrilling tale of domestic suspense that not only questions assumptions but defies expectations. We will discuss this novel two times in the month of January: Wednesday, January 26 at 1:30 pm and Monday, January 31 at 5:30 pm.

New Winter StoryWalk®

Join us outside and around the library for a new story on our popular StoryWalk®. Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner is fun for the whole family and perfect for the upcoming weather and season.
