Letter From The CEO:

Hi All,


What is February? The shortest month of the year, yes, but it’s also Love Your Library month! Consider this your formal invitation to love your library, whether you’re coming in to see us, running through our curbside pickup service, or checking out our online options.


Speaking of online options—if you’re using RB Digital to download our e-magazines, know that the service will be temporarily unavailable at the beginning of the month. The company is changing platforms and the app, so we’ll get everything back up and running when the switch is completed. The good news is, in addition to our magazines, you’ll also have access to even more e-books and e-audiobooks. We’re tripling our collection! Look for those details on our website later in February. It’s just one of the many ways that your library loves you back.


Thanks for all your support and your extensive use of your library!


Amie P.

Library CEO

Love Your Library!

We at the library are celebrating the love for our patrons as well as the love we share for reading.


Reading provides so many benefits; it improves memory, reduces stress, builds self-esteem, and allows readers to develop or improve skills! The library offers a wide choice of genres: mystery, thriller, romance, historical, science fiction, fantasy, dystopian, and all types of amazing non-fiction.


You can show yourself some library love by borrowing a new game to play with the family, or one of our Curiosity Kits to learn a new skill, or a book to snuggle up with!


Celebrate loving your library with us this month!

Book Club For Kids!

Hey kids in grades 3-6!! Sign up for Miss Christy's newest book club, the Big Head Book Club!


You will be reading any "Who Was..." biography of your choice. These books are lovingly called Big Head Books from the caricature on the cover. After you have read the book, join us on February 25th to discuss the questions about the book Miss Christy sent when you signed up.


A great way to learn more about some interesting people from history and share what you know with friends online!


Call, sign-up at the library, or email Miss Christy to register! cmh.bcld@gmail.com

Service Spotlight: Faxing

Fax Machines? Those are still around?


Yes, indeed they are! Many businesses still request faxed paperwork. Worry not! You won't have to travel around town or call business after business trying to get something faxed. We do it for you, for free!

Just drop off your paperwork with the fax number. You can even request a cover sheet.


Give us a call or stop in if you have any questions.
