Happy (almost) New Year!

Even though schools are closed remember that the library is open!  Here at the Maud Marks Branch the only difference in our regular hours is that we close at 5 pm on Monday, December 31 and are closed on New Year's Day.  There are no programs when we're closed but we have plenty going on for the next couple of weeks including family movies at 2 pm on weekdays through Jan 7 and story times for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.  You don't have to have a library card to attend programs or visit the library so feel free to bring your guests too!  Don't forget that we also have a variety of eBooks and eAudio materials that you can check out whether we're open or not; all you need is a library card.
