A SnowDay

Well, it's a mess out there. The schools got out early, and we decided not to open the library today. Any items due today will not be considered late if returned by tomrrow, Friday. Meanwhile, enjoy the snow before it turns to slush.

More Library News


What’s new here? We’ve been very busy, hence the lack of news. We’re busy adding donated books to the collection, preparing for the Reading is Fundamental distribution on February 22, preparing for a Preschool program, setting out tax forms.

The Preschool program will begin March 26 at 10 a.m. and last for one half hour. It will continue every other week through the spring.

Some of our new books include Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich, Killing Ground by Jack Higgins, 7th Heaven by James Patterson, and Appeal by John Grisham. More will be arriving soon.

Four computers are available for your use: 2 Macs and 2 Vistas. You may also do printouts from the computers.

In memory of Elvira Wakefield, the Homer Home Extension has donated a book to the library, titled Patchwork & Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. If you want to make a gift and don’t have much time, this is the book for you.
