Stuffed Animal Sleepover!

The 2nd Annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover happens on Tuesday, February 19th at 7pm. Bring your favorite stuffed animal friend ( and you can wear your PJs), make them a name tag, read them a bedtime story, and leave them to spend the night! Last year’s group had fun at the library at night, even though we thought they were all tucked in to sleep. What will happen this year? Watch the library’s website and Facebook page to see how the Sleepover went.

The library will be closed today, February 12, due to the snow.

Tomorrow evening is the LEGO Club from 6:30-7:30. Next Tuesday is the Stuffed Animal Sleepover!

Don’t forget to check out all the online services – Mango Languages, Flipster Magazines, and Overdrive ebooks, audiobooks, & videos.

The library will be closing early today (5pm). Check back for updates or visit our Facebook page.

The weather is making it difficult to make a decision about our hours today. Right now we are planning to close at 5pm but that could change. Please check back here for an update or visit our Facebook page.
