Thanks to many generous donations to the library in memory of others, we were able to purchase new chairs for our front room.  Many of you recall how the couch that once was in the front room literally exploded into pieces after the library crash.  It is so nice to have these gifts that complete our front room renovation!

Scott Kuykendall gave a presentation on January 9th at the Township Hall.  You can listen to that presentation with the youtube video below.   It's the fastest hour, truly fascinating information!

Thank you, Scott, for sharing your love of history with us.  We can't wait for your next presentation for Veterans Day and we are looking forward to reading your next installment of our time machine trip in Finding Fogo.

Book Club


Book Club met on January 30 to discuss this fun book....

Maybe every January should start out with a Fannie Flagg book.  It was a great read!  But then we said that last year when we started with the Kate Morton book we read last year.  It's nice to start the year off with an exceptionally good book. 

We meet next to discuss Jane Austen's book Persuasion.

You can check this book out on MeL and plan to talk with us about it on February 27th at 1pm in the front room.  We'll be brewing some tea and enjoying what dishes we bring to share as we discuss Alicia's favorite author.

 Teen Council is for anyone in 7-12 grade.

Teens got together on January 30th when they made rubber band guns.  And we promptly forgot to get any photos of the rubber band guns!  Eli says his won though.

Join us on February 27th from 3-4:30pm where we will be making Bottle Cap magnets.  We did those a few years ago and they are really awesome!  We'll try to get photos of the craft this time!


Toddler Time kicked off on January 24.  We get together every Tuesday at 10:30am.  There is a time to color, then singing, story time, craft to make, snack to eat and play time with toys.  Every week we try to update facebook with that days Toddler Time.  Come on out and join in the fun!



Story Time is getting a new twist on an old favorite.  We will have Saturday Story Time twice a month.

We had a lot of fun on our last Saturday Story Time when we celebrated Bring Your Child to the Library day!

We made airplanes.  They were messy, but they were colorful and fun!  It was a really busy and fun day!

One Saturday we will have a movie and one Saturday we will have a K-6th Program. 

Our next movie day will be February 25th when we will be watching Ella Enchanted.  Join us at 10:30 am in the front room!

 Celebrating Seuss Day is coming!  Watch for more information on this fun day we have planned for March 11th.

(Found this image on google.  Clicked through the links and you should really check out the website it came from.  VERY CUTE stuff! All of it is formatted to fit your screen, etc.  And why wouldn't you?  It's Seuss, after all!)
