We gave a nod to the old and the new in our 29 years by displaying our wooden card catalog with a laptop computer set to the online catalog.
Thanks to Miss Lee, Laura and Angus the Reading Dog, the children who shared their joy of reading — and many more!

After School @ The Library: School is back in session and so is our after school program! Beginning September 14, join Miss Lee on Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 PM for homework help, games, crafts, puzzles, music and a lot more! Programs will also include storytelling, hands-on demonstrations, and visits from special guests. Lee is also available on Thursdays from 3 to 8 PM for homework help.
Toddler/Preschool Storytime: Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Join Miss Lee for stories, songs, and movement activities designed for infants to children up to five years old. In addition to developing pre-reading skills, singing, moving to music, and playing instruments all help foster a sense of rhythm and timing that are essential elements in developing the part of a child’s brain that shapes math skills.
Technology Walk-In Wednesdays: Do you have a new Kindle or Nook, but don’t know how to download books? Need to brush up on your computer skills – or obtain basic skills? See Amy on Wednesdays between 10 AM and 1 PM for FREE, personalized, one-on-one instruction.
