Hello, October!


As we enter into October the hours at the library are going to be a bit different in the coming weeks.  First off I am looking for a part time helper, once we are over that hurdle things should settle back down into our normal routine.

Please stop in and see me if you are interested in this part time position. 

Please note the following changes to our normal hours: 

October 7th the library will be open from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The library will be closed on October 10 for Columbus Day

October 20 the library will be closed due to a class I will be attending out of town. 

Check back as I will try to keep everyone up-to-date regarding any other changes. 


Mark your calendars for a fun evening of Adult Crafting!  

On October 19th, starting at 6 p.m. we will be crafting flowers with buttons!  Please bring your ideas and any crafty things to add to your project!  We will have the basics.  This is a FREE activity!


A big thank you to all who worked so hard to  make the Football Supers a Success!

A really big thank you to all who came and enjoyed the Football Supers!  Word on the street is that the night of homecoming was an exceptionaly good night for the Football Supers!  I guess we were all winners that night!!
