Library Column for January 16, 2019

@ Your Library

The library has a new art display in our lobby! Come check out the work by Nicole Leckner. We have had a couple of new artists display in the last year and it is so exciting to see new artists stepping up and sharing their works with the community.  If you have work that can be hung on a wall and would like to display at the library, please come talk to me. We usually have high school art students display in March and April but the rest of the year is open for a two month display, so May/June, July/August, September/October and November/December are available.

Check out our daily trivia quiz on our Facebook page, then visit the library with the answer and earn a free digital movie if you are the first one into the library with the correct answer.  New questions are posted at 3pm each day with answers needed by 3pm the next day to qualify for a prize.
