Library Column for June 30, 2023

@ Your Library

Monday, July 3rd at 1:00 pm we will place our time capsule under the new courtyard stairs. If you haven’t filled out your information sheet for the time capsule, please stop by as soon as possible. We’d love for every library user to complete an information sheet about their current interests and likes for the future to see. We need completed sheets no later than noon on Monday so that we can get the capsule sealed before placement.

A new take-out craft for teens and adults will be available beginning Monday and a found objects puppet kit will be available for kids ages 8 – 13 beginning Wednesday, which is also Libratory day! Elementary aged children are welcome to come and discover the wonders of STEAM at the library each Wednesday at 11:00 am.

Younger kids are welcome to join us with their families on Thursday mornings for storytime at 10:30 am and for Big Play on Friday mornings from 10:30 – noon. Come explore, discover, read, listen and play at the library.

The library will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day. We will have regular hours on Monday and Wednesday, open from 10 am – 8 pm both days.

A Friends of the Library book sale will be held on Friday, July 7th from 11 am – 1 pm. All sales are by donation with proceeds benefiting the Friends support of library programming. Stock up for cabin reading with lots of great reads for all ages.

Our summer programming is just the start of what we can provide to each and every person in this community. Come borrow a book, a magazine, a movie and more. Come explore all the things that we loan to help you learn and play. Go online and discover the huge amount of digital content that entertains, educates and provides escape. Learn a new language, a new hobby, or a new skill all online and available whenever you want. Visit our website at or visit us in person to get a list of our digital offerings.

But at it’s core, the library is still focused on books. We love books, big and small. Come ask us for recommendations or just to chat about books. We love talking about books!
