Are you looking for a holiday gift at an unbeatable price? Take your family to get library cards.
With a free library card, your family has access to books, DVDs, music, downloadable e-books, audio books, and much more. A library card will give your family enjoyment, not just for a week or two, but for many years to come.
Join us to listen to the Downbeats, an easy listening vocal group, as they perform “Songs of the Holidays” noon to 12:45 p.m. Saturday in the chandelier area of the library. Refreshments served by the Friends of the Library for this free event.
The Friends group would like to remind you about their “Merry Little Book Sale” 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Wednesday through Dec. 21 near the library’s computer area. The group will be selling nice-quality, gently used books just in time for the holiday season, and free gift-wrapping is available.
The library will be closed on Dec. 23-Dec. 26 for the Christmas holiday. The library will be open regular hours again Dec. 27. Please plan your library visits ahead and return materials during those weeks. The library will be open regular hours on New Year’s Eve.
