Help fill the library’s wish list, fulfill a dreamDreams start at the library — make a wish. A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question: “Where would I find … or, “could you help me?”

Dreams start at the library — make a wish.
A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question: “Where would I find … or, “could you help me?”
Our staff is fortunate to have the opportunity to help people in our community pursue their dreams every day. Our dream is to make your library an even better place for you, your children and grandchildren.
We’ve created a new online “Library WishList.” Browse through colorful pages filled with books, volunteer opportunities with the Friends of the Library, and items we need for your library. It’s fun.
Choose an item you’d like to see at the library, make a contribution toward the purchase — no amount is too small — or sponsor an item in memory of a loved one. You can purchase a library mug, or you can even join our Friends of the Library group online via check, Paypal or with your credit card. Visit our “Library WishList” now at superiorlibrary.org and help make a wish come true.
The Library’s Winter Storytime continues 10:30-11 a.m. each Tuesday through April 9. Children of all ages are welcome, but the stories, songs and crafts are geared toward preschoolers. We have lots of fun activities planned, and are thrilled to have some new foam crafts purchased for us by the Friends of the Library.
