As a result of the survey we sent out this summer,
the library will host a Toddler Time in October, February, and June.
The 45-minute sessions will be from 6:30-7:15 PM, starting October 30 with a Zoo Animal Costume Party. Lots of age-appropriate activities will be on tap. We will do the “Stuffed Animal Sleepover” again in June as part of our summer reading activities for 2018. Please register online or at the library so we can have enough materials for everyone.

Our patrons have really been enjoying the use of our new DIGITAL MICROFILM READER!
Thanks to a new state-of-the-art digital microfilm reader system, our patrons can access the library’s microfilmed collection of area newspapers, with the latest technology available. The new system replaced a 13 year-old system that quit working shortly before it was replaced.
The ST ViewScan III Digital Reader/Printer/Viewer/Scanner is equipped with ability to capture digital images from microfilm, microfiche and 16mm or 35mm film.
The device is very user-friendly, with an abundance of options for image adjustments and editing. Users may save to a USB, Google Drive, Dropbox, email directly from the device, or directly to their Family Search account.
The library staff is available to assist patrons with the new microfilm reader anytime during operating hours.
This project was made possible through a grant from the Merrick Foundation, Inc, along with funds from the City of Central City and the Library’s endowment fund.

The library followed the town’s “under construction” theme: with a MULTI-PART PROJECT that just WRAPPED UP!
The project included: painting of our meeting room, three study rooms, director’s office, and staff work area. Some of the areas had not been painted since the building was built (over 25 years ago). Chair rails were added to the walls in the study rooms. The carpeting in the entire facility was also just cleaned a few days ago. We’d love to have you stop by and take a look at our mini facelift! This project was funded by the library’s endowment fund.
We LOVE our new paperback display rack! The new solid oak rack replaced two smaller racks that were 25+ years old (and were beginning to break apart).
This project was accomplished with contributions made to the library during this year’s Go Big GIVE event. Thanks again to everyone who made this possible!
