News From Your Library
Come see us on December 7th for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Like last year we will have activities inside the library for the kids and cookies and hot cocoa. Santa will be joining us again to take pictures with anyone who wishes to. He will be arriving at 6:15 PM. There will be a live band outside to get you into the holiday spirit. Overall it looks to be a ho-ho-whole lot of fun for everyone! We hope to see you there!
This month we have an exciting new development! We have got our new book drop
ready for use. We will be phasing out our old book drop in the driveway and
using our building book drop on the north side of the building near the awning.
There are new rules that will be enforced by police under the awning. The inner
lane will be drive through and drop off only. Anyone parked there will be
ticketed and possibly towed. The outer lane is for library staff only. Please do
not park your car under the awning and leave it, even during the threat of bad
weather. We would hate to see anyone have to pay a ticket for illegal parking.
Inside our building, if you haven’t been in for a couple months, you will notice some changes there as well. The large print and young adult books have outgrown their little spaces on the back wall and needed more space to grow in the future. We have taken the large print books off of the back wall and pulled them down into the first four sections of the adult fiction book stacks. The adult fictions have been moved as a result and part of them have taken over the paperback and Kansas section wall. The Kansas section was moved over on the back wall next to the nonfiction books. The paperback books have been moved up to the front nook where our sale books use to be. We no longer keep any books to sell. The young adult books remain on the back wall where they have always been, they just have stretched out to where the large print use to be.
We have not only books and movies but we subscribe to 54 different magazines. Recently we have made some changes to our subscriptions. We still receive the popular; People, Entertainment Weekly, Simple & Delicious, Zoobooks, Highlights, Twist, Seventeen, Road & Track, Shape, and Redbook, to name a few. Our new editions to the collection includes Food Network, HGTV, Knit 1-2-3, Crochet 1-2-3, Craft 1-2-3, and Crochet World. We have traded Sports Illustrated for ESPN to try to get our readers back into the world of sports. Their checkout time is one week and renewals are welcomed.
