Hello, all! It’s that time of year again – we’ve all been sick at least once by now, it’s really cold, and there’s some snow on the ground. The perfect time to curl up in a warm spot and read a great book! 🙂 Well, anytime is the perfect time to read a book, but you know what I mean.
We’ve got lots of new books and media here at the library for you to enjoy! I just added bunch of new movies – some holiday ones, like the newest Grinch movie and Elf, and some new ones, like The Lion King, A Star Is Born, Yesterday, and John Wick 3 (yes, we have the first two!). And we’ve got 450 other movies for you to choose from! Come on down and check one out – you can even use one of our computers to watch the movie! I also have our holiday books on display for you to browse. Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, The Polar Express, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are among the many I have out!
We also have a new clock! Thank you, DEMCO! It has made everyone smile!
If you are a patron, or if you have ever donated anything to our library (whether it be your time, labor, money, books/media/decor/prizes/etc), you are invited to our Patron Only Party! It will be held inside the library, next Wednesday, December 18th, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. You will be able to mingle with other patrons and donors and munch on delicious hors d’oeuvres made by my library board ladies and me! We hope to see you there!! 🙂
Speaking of Wednesdays, our weekly club nights are still going strong! November’s Gym Day had six attendees, and yesterday’s Gym Day also had six! The patrons’ favorite game to play is kickball, with our awesome red soccer ball! They also shoot hoops and play tag, and we always have a popsicle break! It’s lots of fun. Board Game Night in November had seven patrons there, all having fun playing all kinds of games, like Clue, UNO, dominoes, and more! Thank you to everyone who has ever donated games to the library! The patrons (the kids, especially) just love them! There was no Chess Club last month, as we were closed due to weather. Bingo Night this month was a hit, as always, with seven patrons playing BINGO and winning lots of neat prizes!
The library board and I have decided to make some changes to our policy, particularly when it comes to checkout, checkout length, and how we handle late fees and fines. The changes will be effective starting January 1st, 2020, and I will be sure to highlight the changed policies with a blog post, so all of our patrons know what’s expected of them when they use their library’s services! We hope our changes will make things easier for our patrons (and me!), and make their experiences at our library even better.
Thank you all for being a part of our little library!!! <3
That’s all from me for now. This is Liz the Librarian, signing off!
