National Library Week - A "HIT"!Spring Look

Scarf-tying demonstrations and constructing toddler busy bags as well as the perennial favorite, “Wheel of Fortune” were all enjoyed during National Library Week. In the meantime, when you step foot in the library you will be greeted by the fresh spring look pictured here.  See you soon!

 Supplies Needed:

In preparation for our 2014 Summer Reading Program please save the following and deposit in our book drop: dryer vent remnants (lengths of 1 foot or more would be great!), water bottle caps, milk jug caps, clean pizza boxes, and water bottles.  We are also in need of large and mini marshmallows, pretzel sticks, white frosting, Trix cereal, Dixie cups, cotton balls, straws, and balloons.  As always, your donations are appreciated!

Keurig "Cups" are Here!
The saying goes: “You haven’t had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it’s running.”  Well, just in case you want to attempt that, visit us at the library and try out our new Keurig machine, compliments of the Friends of the Library.  It’s sure to keep you moving on these cold, frosty mornings…maybe even well enough to thread a running sewing machine.  And just in case you’re not a coffee drinker, there are ciders and cocoas here as well.  And yes, decaffeinated coffee, too. We thank the Friends for funding this venture and look forward to helping you warm up during these final days of winter 2014.  And remember: “A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.”
