The Friends of the Library provide refreshments.
The library had a box over the holidays to collect contributions of non-perishable items for the food shelf. We are willing to continue collecting these items if people wish to drop them off here. The box is located on the old Service Desk counter, close to the public internet printer.
From now through May, the Children’s Room hosts story time for children ages 3-5 every Wednesday from 10:30-11 a.m. and toddler story time for ages 18-36 months the first Tuesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. in the Children’s Room, and Read to a Dog the first Saturday of every month from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the library’s classroom. No registration is necessary.
Nora Fie, the children’s and young adult manager, has moved into her new office. This was created by the space that used to house the children’s videos and DVDs. This is the first step of a many-step move that will next see the creation of a young adult area in the former adult internet room.
The library will again have tax forms available this year and will put them out as soon as they arrive.
