New Shelving has Arrived

The new shelving has arrived and it is beautiful. Please stop in and see it. This means that books are coming back upstairs and being re-shelved. This is a process that will take some time, with every book being wiped down before it can be shelved. The library project is starting to take shape with the addition of these shelves. Come in and take a look around.

Things are Getting Closer!

Things are progressing with our construction. We have the ceiling done in the basement. We have lights and framing up in the main part of the library and waiting for the rest of the ceiling tiles to be put in. They are working above the front desk, office and foyer. The elevator has been installed, fire sprinklers and fire alarm system. They are working on the brick work on the outside. We hope to start on the restrooms soon. Stop by and see the progress.
The card catalog at the library and on the website is still being worked on and hope to have it up and running soon.
If you have any questions, stop in or call us at 345-1906.

Summer Reading Program Ending

As our summer reading program comes to an end this week, the elevator construction will be reviving up!  The Public will not be allowed downstairs during this part of the construction; however, any staff member will be glad to go down to find your books for you.


Check Out the Book Sale Carts!!!!!

Have you noticed the carts sitting when you walk in the door of the library? These are our book  sale books, dvds, and cassettes and cd books. These items have been weeded from our collection or donated to the library.

We check donations against our collection and if the copy is nicer looking, then we switch them out  or even add them to our collection. If it is something that we can not use then they are put on the carts for sale going to the McCook Public Library Foundation.

Remember us when you are cleaning out your book shelves or after your yard sale. We take adult and children’s books. magazines, cd books, well about anything.

Please check out these carts when coming to the library. Items are added to the carts all the time.

We also take craft items to be used with various children’s programs.
