THIS MONTH’S ONLINE EVENTS

Fine Free on Children's and YA Materials

The Library Board  recently approve us eliminating fines on all youth materials.  This includes picture books, board books, easy readers, chapter books, children’s nonfiction, youth audio books, children’s magazines, and teen books. It ALSO includes children, family, and teen movies.
 
Why you ask? Because we LOVE our patrons. But also, the American Library Association (ALA) put out a resolution that fines present an economic barrier to accessing library materials and services. In the library’s recently-created strategic plan, the Library Board and staff set a goal to be available, accessible, and inclusive, with a working objective of exploring a fine free or partially fine-free initiative.

Surprise Me Book Requests!

Want to get some things from the library while we are closed for in person browsing but you aren’t sure exactly what? Let our staff Surprise You! Fill out our Surprise Me form with some general information and we will work our library magic to pick out books for you!

 

NEW! Biblio Explorers

Biblio Explorers is a reading passport program for 9-12 year olds. Pick up your passport from the library or complete it online then work to complete all the pages with help from our guided reading suggestions.  Use this passport to explore many different genres in your tween years.   After finishing a submission, you can bring your passport in to get that section stamped!  When you finish your entire passport, bring it in to get a button, something sweet, and some name recognition in the Tween Area.  Ages 9-12.
