Interlibrary Loans

   The State seems to be getting back to normal as far as their deliveries for interlibrary loan items are concerned.  The wait time is up to two weeks for anyone interested in receiving items from another library.  Deliveries are back in service for local libraries as well.

Summer Reading Program

   Our 2017 Summer Reading Program ended on Friday, August 4th.  However, that doesn’t mean that reading has to stop!  We have new books coming in as well as the good old favorites from which to choose.  All participants’ reading logs may be picked up by parents any time after August 14th.  The Library Summer Reading Program logs may be attached to the Governor’s Reading Challenge logs and sent in to school for tabulation.  Thank you to all the participants.

Adult Programs

   Friday Night Crafting Club, 6-8 pm.  Bring your project to the library and take some time for yourself with fellow crafters.  This informal group meets in the library’s lower level and requires no registration.
