Teens

The Greatest Love Story of All

Let's be honest: a lot of supposedly grand love stories tend to, well, let us down in the end. But there is one special relationship that never truly let's us down. What's that you ask? As any good bibliophile knows, the answer, of course, is books. Their stories can sweep you away, provide a laugh, a cry, an escape-- and you don't even have to take it out to dinner. Valentine's Day is upon us once again, so here are a few titles, for kids, teens and adults, to enjoy.

Celebrate African American History Month With Us!

I love our national holidays that celebrate history and culture. Working at the library, I get the opportunity to plan and participate in programs that teach me more about cultures and to interact with peoples that I wouldn’t get to otherwise. That is why I am so excited that February is African American History Month and you should definitely be too. We have some amazing activities for all ages that will allow you to learn more about African American heritage and history, while having fun at the same time. Here are some of the great activities we have planned:

Help the Library better serve you!

January isn't just a time for people to try to figure out what they can do better. Libraries like to do it too! Help us to better serve you this year by letting us know what your favorite programs of the year were. On our list below are some of our best attended programs of 2018. Let us know what you loved, and if there are other programs we did that you liked, let us know by writing them in! We'll try to take that information to do more of what our community loved as we plan our programs this year.

Biographies for all ages

Have you ever heard the phrase about how life is an empty book and we’re the authors? Well, I couldn’t remember exactly how it went so I went on a little Google search and found…a lot of very similar quotes that all boil down to the same thing. My life, well, probably wouldn’t make the most interesting of reading materials to the general public, but there are some works out there, some people out there, that have filled their books with some amazing things. With that in mind, here are a handful of biographies for each age group, perfect to learn from and be inspired by. 

 

 

Treating People with Kindness

Let’s talk about kindness. There’s a lot of negativity being thrown around these days, and sometimes it’s hard to be empathetic and keep your head up. But, as the old adage says, it cost nothing to be kind. It’s not easy, I’m well aware--it takes courage to be kind in the face of everything the world may throw at you and, sometimes, we need a little help remembering how. So, here are a few titles, for the youngest all the way up to the oldest, to help us remember that, even when things seem insurmountable, a little bit of kindness can go a very long way.
