Closure Notes

A few notes about our closing:

  • Please, if possible, hold onto your books until June 29, when we reopen. This will make the process much easier for us.  If you have a special circumstance (such as moving), please let us know and we will try to work something out.
  • Wireless internet access outside the red building will last until June 26.  At this point, the internet connection will be switched over to the new building.  Chances are, no wireless internet connection will be available that day at either location.
  • Our phone service is being switched over on June 19 from the old building to the new building! Please try to use email or Facebook as your first attempt to contact us for the rest of the week while we try to get everything lined up.

Thank you so much for your understanding while we move!  We are so excited to reopen in our new location.

Library Closed

The library is closed today due to Volunteer Appreciation Day. Thank you for your understanding!

Saying Goodbye and Summer Reading

Our farewell to the library party is Saturday, June 15 from 10 AM until noon.  This also corresponds to the summer reading kick-off event.  Come say farewell to the building, register for summer reading, and make a small craft!  This would also be a great time to stock up on books while we are closed for the next two weeks.  We'll see you again on June 29!


Requests for our Annual Sale

St. George Days will be upon us before we know it!  If you have any extra plants you would like to donate, please contact Kathleen Ludman.  If you have any jewelry or treasures, please contact Diane Barnes or Peggy Gillespie.  If you don't already have their contact information, please call the library at 372-8961 and we'll help you get in touch with the right person.  Thank you so much for your donation!
