Barbara Bush closed April 20th

Good Morning everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and dry this week. As many of you know, we've been closed the past couple days due to high water in the area. While we think the library itself is okay, surrounding areas (ie parking lots/streets) are still under water and we have no way of getting into the building. We will be closed again today and I just wanted to pass some info along to all of our customers. I am sure our being closed is a major inconvenience to a lot of our customers and hopefully we will be back to normal soon. 

Here are some things to know while the Barbara Bush Library is closed: 

Teen Scavenger Hunt

Have you ever wondered where Katnis would hide in the library? In honor of National Library Week, our YA Librarian Megan has created a fun scavenger hunt for teens. Come on by the library at 5pm and see if you can find your favorite book characters in the stacks!
