Come check out our Blind Date with a Book Display! 

Do you judge a book by it's cover?  We've got something new for you to try then!  These books are single and ready to mingle, but you can only check them out by reading a few key words.  Take your book home and see if you have a new love or a dud.  The great thing about it is that if you don't like your date, you just pick a new one! 

Post photos of you and your blind date book to our facebook so we can all enjoy the fun of the Month Of Love.

Book Club


On January 25th, the book club got together to discuss The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton.  What.  A.  Book.  All the more so because not everyone finished the book in time for Book Club.  No one wanted to give away the ending so there were notes passed and whispers whispered to those who had finished it.  We all are looking forward to everyone finishing it so that we can discuss it more entirely.

Our next book club book is Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner.  This book is in the same historical time as The Secret Keeper.   We will discussing this book on February 15th at 1pm.

 Teen Council will be meeting on February 22 at 3pm to discuss this interactive book, Can You Survive the Wilderness? 

At our last Teen Council Meeting, the teens worked on creating a puzzle.  Taking a child's large piece puzzle, the teens decorated the pieces of the puzzle with their own art.  The puzzle had a few more pieces left over that had not been decorated.  We are hoping we can get that done at the next meeting!

Stay tuned for a possible Field Trip in March.


Toddler Time is every Tuesday morning at 10:30.  Toddler Time is geared for babies to school aged children.  The children gather to color pictures from 10:30 to about 10:45.  Then there is singing, story book reading, craft, snack, and play time.  The train table remains a favorite!  Join us on Tuesdays!


Story Time is back! Join us every Saturday at the library at 10:30 am.  Story time is geared for kids Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Currently, the kids are listening to The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis.  This is a radio dramatization and while the scene attached is from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, it does give you an idea of the joy of listening to a radio dramatization.
