Self-Check Machines

We have three new self-check machines that give customers the option to check out their own materials.  It is now even faster to pick up items on the hold shelf, check out and be on the way.  We thank the Villages for their help with this purchase.

Summer Reading Program Success

The Summer Reading Program that ended on August 7th had a total of 308 branch participants.  These individuals signed up, read or listened to books and recorded them online.  There were 234 children, 22 teens and 52 adults who registered.   If you missed the chance this summer be watching next summer when we will do it again.  This program gives you a chance to record titles, rate the books and even write your opinions.  Even a chance to win a prize!

Story Times

The year around storytimes are always a favorite.  With four story times each week there is an age appropriate time for all the little ones and their caregivers.  The times are as follows: Babytime, Wednesday, 10am; Toddlers, Wednesday 11am and Thursday 10am; and Preschool, Thursday 11am.  If you haven't been to one of Miss Maggie's storytimes, you have missed a treat.
