Letter From The CEO:

Welcome to March!


Even if it doesn’t always feel spring-like, we know that Spring Break is this month. If you’re traveling, don’t forget to stock up on the books and movies you need before you leave, or download the correct apps so you can get your books and movies on the go. If you’re staying here with us, we’ll have events happening throughout Spring Break so you have something to do while you’re on your stay-cation. Watch our website and social media for details.


Since we now know we’ll be staying in this building for the foreseeable future, we’re working to reconfigure some things to ensure this building lives up to its full potential. We’ll try to do so with as little disturbance to all of you as possible, but if you can’t find something, just ask a staff member. We’re always happy to help.


Please know that we’ve followed the Health Department’s lead throughout the pandemic, which means that face masks are no longer required in the building. However, anyone may choose to wear a mask at any time, and we ask that you continue to be kind to those who make choices that are different than your own. And please, if you aren’t feeling well or someone with you isn’t feeling well, stay home. We love helping you, but we don’t want your germs.


Amie P.

Library CEO

Kids Invade Crafter's Corner

This month we are switching things up a bit! For Spring Break, Kids will be invading Crafters Corner. We will be making Buddha Boards on March 18th from 1pm to 3pm. This is an all age event, but we ask that a parent/guardian comes with your child if they are under 12. Space is limited so please call to reserve your spot.


What are Buddha Boards? They are a mindful water art. You take a paint brush, dip it in water and draw on the buddha board. In a matter of seconds your design disappears. It is a beautiful practice of letting go, and also a no mess craft.


Crafter's Corner is held on the 3rd Friday of every month from 1-3pm, so if you're unable to make it this month keep a look out for next month's craft.
