Picture Books Back Home Again

Our children's picture book area is back to normal for the first time since an unknown vehicle crashed into the building in May, toppling books, breaking glass and destroying shelves. Staff relocated the picture books to nearby shelves and blocked off the area because of safety concerns after the crash. Now the barricades are gone and the books are back where they belong, waiting for little customers to take them home.

Regular Hours Resume September 8

It's a Record!

Friends BookcartThe Friends of the Parker Williams Library made over $600 at Saturday’s book sale. “This is the best sale we have ever had,” said Camille Barmore, the Friends’ Treasurer. Thanks to the generous donations of our community, we are able to offer a variety of materials such as hardback and paperback books, magazines, movies, and CDs. The Friends’ book sale is on the last Saturday of the month. Show your support two ways: donate things for the book sale or buy things from the book sale. Either way, we win!
