This Fall we are happy to say that we are getting new carpet! We have been in the process of narrowing down our choices and making a decision. We've done a lot of legwork and will be closing for two weeks for the installation. We have not quite narrowed down the dates - we will update our website, Facebook page and post notices at the library when we have the final dates. This will impact some of our regularly scheduled programming. Store times will be affected among other programs - please give us a call or check our calendar for current
We had a winner! Zofia guess the closest to the number of total legos in the jar! There is still time to finish Red Clover Punch cards, Dorothy Canfield Fisher raffle entries as well as the Young Adult Raffle entries-- Stop by the circulation desk and ask Erin or down at the Children's desk and ask Julie about these raffles and prizes! Don't forget that that summer reading fun will wrap up before school starts - bring in your reading sheets and incentive games to collect your prizes.
