Read to Celebrate Memorial Day

Memorial Day is Monday, May 28th, and we think reading is a fantastic way to celebrate!

Memorial Day began as an informal holiday celebrated at the end of May when people honored their loved ones who had passed. It was made a federal holiday in 1971, and has become the day we honor our fallen soldiers and veterans. Here is a list of recommended fiction, nonfiction, and biography to help us understand and celebrate the sacrifices our armed forces have made for our freedom.

Give Local MOV – Young Reader’s Room Entrance

The Library is participating again in this year’s Give Local MOV.  We have matching funds of up to $1,800.

We are raising funds to jazz up the entrance to the Young Reader’s Room.  We are looking to add a mural background and a carved wood tree for the small children’s door on the side (kid’s will walk through the tree trunk).  Please see the picture below.  We will be posting an artist mock up soon.  We have already raised $3,000 towards the project, and we are looking to raise at least $2,000 more to finish the project.  Please take the time to help us on May 1st by donating.
