The Melcher-Dallas Public Library will be closed on Monday, February 5th, for a funeral. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We look forward to seeing you at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, February 6th during our usual hours of operation.
Come Craft with Me!
We will have our craft night on February 22nd. at 6 p.m. The craft will be a small planter, featuring a St. Patrick Gnome. We will have pint size jars available for our craft and hopefully some little plants. Please feel free to bring your own plant if you wish as ours will be very small. We will also have potting soil available.
Hope to see you on the 22nd.
A Note of Thanks!
Thank you to all who attended our January 'Come Craft with Me' night! We had several in attendance and enjoyed the evening. I hope to see you for our February craft night!
