Library Lovers Month

February is Library Lovers Month!  Throughout the month, 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.

Write your name, initials, or a message on the heart, and we’ll display it to show your support for Summer Learning and your love for the library!

Blind Date with a Book

Valentine's Day will be here before we know it. With the holiday approaching, it's the perfect time to go on a blind date with a book!

Come to the library and check out one of our mystery books. You won't know what title you got until you check it out!

Take your book home; read it; rate it. Was your book a dream date or a total dud? Bring in your rating when you return your book for the chance to win gift certificates to the Isis Theatre!

Hurry in – all blind dates need to be wrapped up by February 14th!

Holiday Food Drive

It's the season of giving!  In that spirit, the library is hosting a food drive throughout the month of December.

Canned foods and other non-perishables, as well as hygiene items like toilet paper and feminine products are highly needed.

You can bring your items and drop them off in our donation box near the front desk.

Thank you for sharing what you can this holiday season.
