Spring and Summer happenings for 2019.
Director's Message

Spring and Summer Happenings!

Spring sprang forward from behind Winter. The rains came, chilly temperatures, not to mention frost-all typical for spring. The temperatures have slowly risen to more traditional levels with the hope of Summer arriving S-O-O-N!

We are planning for the annual 'Summer Reading Program' 'A Universe of Stories' beginning Tuesday, June 18, 2019 and each Tuesday through to July 30, 2019. (Schedule to follow in our Events Folder. No program during the week of July 4, 2019.)

Our theme takes a look at Apollo 11's first landing on the Moon and it's first step onto another world. It was an exciting climax to the space race, the world's largest rocket at the time. It was a classic story, leaving our home planet a mere 100 hundred years after connecting the transcontinental railroad and only sixty-six years after the Wright Brothers first powered flight.

This July 20th we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that accomplishment. Where were you on July 20,1969, when Commander Neil Armstrong and crew members Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins reached the Moon?

We will begin program sign-up Monday, May 20, 2019 here at the library. There isn't a charge to sign-up. Each child will make out a Reading Contract. We will record their progress each week with their name being entered into a weekly drawing for prizes. COME JOIN US!!

The library will be closed the following dates due to holiday and city wide celebrations:
