Pardon our dust and noise!
That’s because the renovation of the East Building of the library has officially started.  Demolition began the beginning of August and the entire project is planned to take 4 months.  Once the renovation is finished the East Building will include: a handicapped accessible entrance; a meeting room for public use; ADA accessible men’s and women’s bathrooms; a staff lounge; and storage space for the library.  During the construction the library will maintain its regular hours and services.

The library will also continue to offer all the children’s programming that it is currently offering.  Be sure to check out the story times being offered on Monday and Thursday Evenings at 6:00 pm.  And don’t forget that every Saturday afternoon at 1:30 the library offers either a craft program or a story time. 
Starting in September the library will start offering a Teen Craft Night the first Wednesday of every month.  The program will be open to teens ages 11 to 17.  

In October the library will have its Halloween Kids Fest.  The program will be held on October 22 at 1:30 pm and kids aged 3 to 10  are invited  to get dressed  up and participate in a variety of games.  There will be a featured performer, prizes and refreshments for all who attend.
