 We're excited about some of the new fall programs that are coming up! Here's one for Halloween...Do you have a favorite story character from a kids' book, like Harry Potter, Pete the Cat or Fly Guy? Why not bring that character to life in the form of a pumpkin in costume, then enter it in our Library Pumpkins Contest? How about Skippyjohn Jones, Captain Underpants or Olivia...the possibilities are endless! This is a family contest, so everyone...

A full listing will be posted shortly on our closed circuit TV...please take note, and be as generous in supporting our local merchants as they have been in supporting us! Now that fall is upon us, there are new...

We have recently added Playaways to our collection and thus far they have  received much praise from parents and children alike. And now that summer is ending Playaways are great for siblings who may be sitting and waiting at a dance studio, sporting event, or a meeting their adult is attending. They are also wonderful for long car rides; each child can listen to his or her own story. From picture books to teens, we have a varied selection. An...

Lions & tigers & bears, oh noooooooooooo! Those aren't the animals that are coming to visit next week! But Rick Roth, from Creature Teachers, assures me that he will be bringing us some very unique critters, with their own stories to tell! Since kids are crazy for critters, we are offering two shows, back to back, so we can fit everybody in! We still need you to sign up on-line, since there are space limitations for use of the room....

Hey, kids! Guess what? The number of visits to the Reporting Lab this summer just topped the1000 mark! Was yours one of them? So far, over 7000 books have been logged in...but there's lots of time left to bring the number up to our annual average of 20,000. The Mad Scientists are still in the lead, but the Robots are narrowing the gap...keep up the good work! The Lab Rats are not that far behind...thanks to all the parents and siblings who've...

Hey, Robots! You've got some reading to do! For the second straight week, the Mad Scientists have leaped up the scale to an impressive lead! There's still plenty of time to catch up, though. Haven't joined the Summer Reading Program yet? What are you waiting for? Come on down to the library and sign up for fun and prizes. Team competition is just for fun...no pressure on anybody. Speaking of fun, silly Alex the Jester will be with us tomorrow (...
