We love that our story room gets used by kids and families. We love that all the toys and games we stock are fun for you to play with. Thank you to the many, many people that use the room conscientiously.
But someone left this mess for us to clean up. That’s not nice. So here’s a reminder to please think of others and try to leave the room as you found it.
Also, please be sure that you’re not accidentally taking home anything that belongs to the library. We’ve recently lost a Kermit the Frog and some dinosaur figurines, for example. If you find them among your toys, please send them home. We promise to ask no questions.
Monday, September 9
Come to the library to enjoy a classic movie and some free popcorn. This month we will enjoy the delightful comedy It Happened One Night. Starring Claudette Colbert as a pampered socialite who falls for a roguish reporter played by Clark Gable, it swept the major category Oscars in 1934.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! We are celebrating all month long. Sign up for a new card and you can spin our wheel for a small prize!
Already have a card? Great! We will be offering a special patron appreciation week, including a fine amnesty. Bring your card in to the library (Yes, you must bring your card!) during the week of September 9th through September 14th and we will forgive your late fees from our library. We are not able to forgive fines from other libraries or lost item fees.
Coffee and Conversation
Second and fourth Wednesday of each month
11 am – 1 pm
Starting in September, drop in to the library for a hot beverage and a chance to meet new friends or visit old ones. Bring your knitting or your book, a board game or an article you want to talk about. We will provide the coffee and tea, you provide your own lunch or a treat to share.
Does this all sound a little vague? Good. This will be your group, and we want you to shape it. Everyone is welcome!
Don’t forget that we do a family matinee on the third Saturday of every month at 11:00 am. Saturday, August 17th is Moana. Whether you’ve seen it before or not, you’ll love the story of young Moana as she travels the seas to save her people! And the popcorn is on us!
