Note from the Director

If you haven't come by the library recently, we hope you come by soon- the library is now open at all hours for browsing and computer use. When you visit, you may notice that things look a little brighter in here-- that's because the library recently took advantage of a SWEPCO incentive program to retrofit all of our old fluorescent lighting to LED fixtures, which will help save energy and cut down on our electricity costs. This change is one of our latest steps in the Carnegie Cares sustainability initiative to make your library a more environmentally-friendly institution.

Summer Reading Program

This year's Summer Reading Program is just around the corner! See for updates.

Take an Art Break

May Festival of the Arts may still be on hold, but your creativity doesn't need to be! Check out either of the Little Free Libraries in town (near the Crescent Gazebo or at the Clear Spring School) to grab one of the free art packets provided by Art is Moving and create your own masterpiece today. Supplies are limited, so don't wait to go grab one! Special thanks to Rebecca Becker for coordinating this take & make activity.
