Coloring Contest

We’re having a coloring contest for kids and adults! (Teens compete as adults.)

Come to the library to pick up a full size copy of this ‘Do the Dewey’ poster.

Color it in with crayons, colored pencils, or any way you like. Write your name clearly on the back. Make sure we know which age bracket you’re in (kid or teen/adult). Hand it in to any library staff during open hours.

We’ll announce the winning entries on March 29th, then put up these posters in both the kid and adult nonfiction areas.

FINE FREE FRIDAYS

Bring in overdue books/audio books on Fridays in February & March and fines will be forgiven! This applies only to books and audio books (no DVDs or other materials) and only to items that are brought into the library (not to items left in the book drop) during library hours on Fridays.

Charges for books that have had to be replaced still apply. Otherwise, fines on even long-overdue books will be removed from library records, so it’s a good time to clean those bookshelves!
