We're Going on a Bear Hunt!

There were lots of scary bears at Storytime today! Beautiful little eyes peeped from the holes in bear masks and lots of growling was heard! Don't miss Storytime! It's just too much fun!

Lobby Book Sale

Our Friends of the Library keep books and magazines for sale in our lobby. Money raised by the sales comes back to the library for summer programs and items for the library. Be sure and stop by to see what is for sale. The Friends will be having a big sale on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12 during library hours. Lots of things will be on sale. Hope to see you there.
