Firefighters wow a young crowd


Many thanks to our local firefighters for stopping by the library’s Wednesday story time. The children and adults learned some important lessons about fire safety. You guys are great and deserve all our thanks for keeping the community safe — and informed. And thanks to Kim and Nancy for another fabulous learning adventure.12112234_10203587399045536_1331628702041513420_n

Congratulations Gianni

Gianni Donati, winner of the “BookShelf Quilt” raffle, graciously gifted the quilt back to the library for permanent display. Following a staff suggestion, the quilt will be on roving display throughout the library so that everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy it. Artist Ce Swanson is hard at work on another that she claims will look more like a quilt than a shelf of books (which is sometimes easy to overlook in this place). Thanks Gianni and everyone who made this such a successful raffle.gianni1

September is Library Card Sign-up Month

You need to be 3 years or older, have your parents present a photo ID and proof of residence, and limit your borrowing to two items at a time for a few months (until we know you will take good care of our library materials). This card will let you check out books, movies, magazines from the library and give you on-line access to study guides, classes, newspapers, encyclopedias, movies, and a host of electronic media. The only card you really need to succeed!
