Letter From The CEO:

Ah March! That means spring is almost here.

It's time to start thinking about this year's gardens. Lucky for you we have a bushel of books on this very topic. We also have our Seed Library starting up again. Stop in and see what seeds we have this year.

For the kids, Miss Christy has started the Big Head Book Club. Read one of the "Who Was..." books and meet up on zoom to discuss it. For grades 3-6. Email her to register at

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's Birthday. Stop by and pick up a gift bag for the kids and check out our special Dr. Seuss Virtual Story Time. Gift bags will be first come, first served and are limited in supply.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, give us a call. We're here to happily serve you.

Amie P.

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 Zoom 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!

Service Spotlight: Seed Library

It's almost spring! That means gardening season is just around the corner!

Not sure what a seed library is? Do you 'check out' seeds? The short answer is, yes, sort of.

Here's how it works. Come into the library, pick the seeds you would like to grow this season, fill out the form and take them home. Grow the seeds, harvest the crops, save some of the seeds, dry them out, and bring the seeds back. Someone will get to use them next year to grow plants from your crops. It's quite exciting!

Stop in and check out the library or chat with someone for more information.


Please keep checking our website and Facebook page throughout the month to see our online events and any updates we may have!
