Another Tuesday Storyhour success! We had a ton of fun crafting with children’s librarian Miss Jess — we made crowns and read books and shared some good laughs in good company. A lovely way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season. Looking forward to weekly Storyhours forevermore!

Upcoming Holiday Book Sale

The library is happy to welcome this year’s holiday book sale hosted by our neighbors, Eastern Star! Save yourselves the madness of big box store shopping and support this local effort featuring books, books, books for all ages and interests!


On Halloween, the Library hosted a Halloween party at the Kaatskeller! Kids up to age 12 (and their families) were welcome to play games, decorate cookies, win prizes, and participate in a costume contest!

The Kaatskeller was well-decorated for the event.
