National Library Week 2018

National Library Week is April 8th–14th!

During National Library Week, we’re celebrating the many ways libraries lead their communities through the transformative services, programs and expertise they offer.

Throughout the week, come in for library-themed games, trivia, and puzzles for the chance to win a prize!

Libraries wouldn’t be here without you, the patron.  To celebrate, come in between 11:00 and 2:00 on Patron Appreciation Day on Wednesday, April 11th, for cookies, coffee, and camaraderie in the library’s Activity Room.

Library Lovers Month

February is Library Lovers Month, and we’re holding our annual Hearts Campaign to raise money for 2018’s Summer Learning program.

Summer Learning continues to get bigger and better – last year over a hundred adults and 296 kids & teens participated.  Support from the community is what allows us to make Summer Learning such a fun and popular program.

Throughout the month, you can buy a heart at the library’s main desk for $1, $5, or $10.  Your donation will go directly toward this year’s Summer Learning program.

New Light Therapy Lamp Brightens the Library

Are you looking for a little more light in your life?  Try the library’s new light therapy lamp!

The relative lack of sunlight during winter months is thought to negatively affect mood for some people.  Exposure to bright light may help alleviate these “winter blues.”

Our new lamp generates illuminance of up to 10,000 lux.  You’ll find it in the library’s Reading Room.  Library patrons are welcome to come and sit under the lamp anytime.

We hope our lamp helps you have a happy, brighter winter!

Niche Academy: Learn to Use Digital Library Services

At the library, we think we have a lot of great online services: OverDrive e-books & audiobooks; RBdigital magazines; Freegal music; Hoopla movies, TV series, comics... the list goes on!

However, we know that figuring out how to use these services can sometimes be a challenge.  That’s why we’re excited to offer tutorials for these services through Niche Academy.
