The Library Book Sale is coming soon! Friday, May 5, 1-6 p.m. and Saturday, May 6, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. We will be taking donations for the sale starting this week. Please do not drop items in the back book drop for the sale. Donations need to be brought into the library. Mark the date and plan on getting some great books, DVDs and lots more for your personal library at home.
Food for Fines: During the month of April bring in any non—perishable food item to receive $1 off of your fines. One item is $1 off. It's a win-win, you can pay down any fines you might have and food shelves will be stocked for the upcoming summer months. If you don't have any fines and still want to participate, we would love to have you donate your food items.
Story Time: Story times are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30-11:15 a.m. On May 8 and 10 will be Colors and Shapes; May 15 and 16 will be Summer. Brittany will be taking a few weeks off of story time to get things ready for summer reading.
