Annual Week of Weeding

The library staff is busy weeding, weeding, weeding.  It’s our annual week of weeding older materials to make room on our shelves for new items.  What does this mean for you, our patrons?  It means many items for you to come make your own.  We have weeded in nearly all areas of the library.  (Adult fiction, non-fiction, children’s section, young adult books, and a variety of DVDs) We give our weeded items away free of charge to anyone who would like to give them a new home.  Please stop by the library to pick out any items you wish to have.

Presbyterian Reading List 2015

Each year several of the ladies who attend the Presbyterian Church take part in reading books compiled on a National List.  Those who participate often strive to read all or nearly all of the books on the list.  The staff at the library is excited to be a part of this undertaking each year.  We strive to get many of the items listed purchased for the library so the items are readily available for check out.  2015 is no exception and once again we have received many new items.  Stop by your local library to check out these new additions to our shelves.
