The library will be closed on July 4 for the Independence Day Holiday. We will re-open at 9 a.m. on July 5.
Our Summer Reading Program continues with some really great programs for children and teens:
Join us in the meeting room on Tuesday from 2-3 p.m. for a program on Henry Ford and the Model T Car. Car enthusiast Kim Culp will answer questions about old cars and life in the early 20th century when transportation went from horse and buggy to the “horseless carriage” and how this changed the world. Bring your camera to have your picture taken in a 1915 Tin Lizzie.
Ready to “tie the knot?” Boy Scout Troop 202 will give a demonstration on various knot-tying techniques on Wednesday from 2-3 p.m. in the meeting room. This will be a hands-on event for children.
Al Gagne is our feature artist this month. His original wood carvings will be on display in the art window in the library’s lobby throughout the month of June.
