Book Buck Spending Week!

It’s Book Buck Spending Week #1 next week! We’re setting up the window, and filling it with lots of great items to purchase with those book bucks! If you have a teen reader who has been reading and collecting book bucks, remind them to stop in next week to see what we have. Drop in every day (the window will be constantly changing), or wait until the September spending week to get the most out of your book bucks!

This is what we’ve been waiting for all summer!



It’s the last storytime session of summer! Don’t worry…we’re not taking a break for long, but this is the last chance you’ll get to hear Miranda deliver some great stories, and do some songs. We’re wrapping up all of our summer programs this week (except for summer reading), and we’ll be back in the first few weeks of September. Our fall programming schedule will be out soon, so watch for that.

Until then, make sure you’re signed up for today! Give us a call….storytime starts at 10am.

TAG, Teen Book Club, & Goodbyes

This is the last week for your teen to get their application into the library for our 2018-2019 Teen Advisory Group. They’ll meet new people, do great things for the library, and even earn most of their school volunteer hours. But, they can’t participate if they don’t submit an application, so make sure to drop by the library to pick one up. It’s a fun interview process (we promise), and they’ll make a real difference to our library.

We’re also getting books ready for our Teen Book Club, which begins again in September. This is always an amazing activity for teens aged 12 and up, who love to read. We meet on the last Wednesday of every month for snacks, book talk, and MUCH more. This will be our fourth year running, and we’re hoping to have a few new faces join us. Our book list for the 2018-2019 period is exciting, a little adventurous, and hopefully, exactly what everyone wants to read and discuss!

Long Weekend Hours

The library will be closed on Monday, August 6, so please make sure you drop in for all your library needs before Saturday at closing. Here are our long weekend hours:

Saturday, August 4  OPEN 10am – 5pm

Sunday, August 5   CLOSED

Monday, August 6   CLOSED

Tuesday, August 7  OPEN 1:30pm – 8pm

Don’t forget to stop in to get your PIN so that you can access all of our fun online resources while we’re closed.


Today is the last day of July, and that means programs for this month are wrapping up. This morning, we have a VERY full session of 9 – 12 year olds who will join us to decorate mugs…..and in the afternoon, we have a LEGO drop in for ages 3-8 from 1:30-3:30pm.

But that doesn’t mean we’re finished with programs. No! We have lots of fun coming up later this week, and well into August. This Thursday is going to be especially weird and wacky…we’re celebrating Halloween…in August!  Don’t be surprised if you walk into the library today and see spoooky things everywhere!  And dress up, if you like.

A lot of the programs are just drop ins, but there are a few that require registration, so make sure to check the schedule carefully. Our programs have been pretty full, and we don’t want anyone to go away disappointed.

Happy (almost) August, everyone!
