We have HUNDREDS of new Young Adult and children’s books this month. Thanks to our recent fundraisers and donations, we were able to purchase more than one hundred new YA and children’s novels. We are also continuously ordering new books for our Large Print section thanks to our annual book sale. So hurry and come see what’s new!
This summer we WILL be having a summer reading program and this year’s theme is SCIENCE! We will be having multiple programs from outside performers including an astrology program and will be having story time every Friday at 10AM. We will let you know when the beginning of summer reading will start next month. In the meantime we are looking for volunteers who are 12+ years old, so if you’re interested stop in and see us for more information!
We will also be starting computer classes again in the middle of May. If you have any suggestions for topics for the computer classes please don’t hesitate to tell us, we are always wanting to teach you what YOU want to know!
Thanks everyone for a great year so far, enjoy your Spring (if it lasts!), and have a happy holiday!
THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered, donated, and bought bake goods at our annual bake sale last week. We could not have done it without you! We are really excited to be able to order more large print books for our patrons.
