We encourage all students to enter a pumpkin!! For more information on rules and regulations, visit the library.

Maker Space

What is a Maker Space??? Maker Spaces are one of the hottest new trends in libraries these days. This is a space in a library that offers patrons the opportunity to create through different types of technology, building supplies, arts and crafts supplies, writing opportunities and more. We are just beginning to get our Maker Space up and running with plans to add to it as the school year goes on. Come in today and contribute to our story building or learn to finger knit.
