September is Libary Card Sign-Up Month

  September brings a new school year and lots of fun programs for children from infants through 12 years old.  First, this month is Library Card Sign-Up Month.  Children attending our regular storytimes can show us their library card and then put their name on a bee to place on the "beehive" on the Children's Activity Space bulletin board.

Our weekly Maker Monday programs return on Monday, September 14.  These afterschool programs are for children 5-12 years old.   They feature an activity or craft each week.  Ticket are required.  They are free and available starting 30 minutes before the program.

We Have New Friends!

Hey everyone, we are thrilled to introduce our new friends. Miss Michelle Taylor very kindly donated these wonderful pillows and they are already being loved a lot! Thank you Ms Taylor for thinking of us!
