The Superior Public Library has a new website address: superiorlibrary.org. We are still putting the finishing touches on it, but our newly-designed website is up and running and ready for you to explore. We have links to all of the library’s digital content such as e-books and databases, as well as current information about library news and events. Please stop by superiorlibrary.org and please make us one of your “favorites” or “bookmarks” in your browser.
The library will be closed Saturday and Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. The library resumes regular hours on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
Pianist Ruby Thomas performs at Thursday at noon in the Chandelier Area of the library. In honor of Memorial Day, Ruby will be playing patriotic music and telling the meaning of each fold of the American Flag. It will be a “Brown Bag Lunch” performance, so bring your lunch and the Friends of the Library will provide the cookies and beverages. This concert is free and the public is invited.
Starting June 6, the downtown Farmers’ Market runs Wednesdays in the library’s north parking lot. The hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Oct. 26. We hope you can stop in for a library visit before or after you shop.
