Come by often and check out our bulletin board for all the events and what Casey, our Art Director, has planned.

We have received a grant from the Pearsall Foundation and will be purchasing supplies for our “Winter Paint and Sip”  On some Saturday afternoons, over the course of the winter months we will be painting and sipping (Wine and/or Tea) and creating masterworks in watercolor or acrylic.  Some dates will have instructors and some will be “ Themed Painting”.  A small donation and RSVP’s will be appreciated.  Stay tuned for more info.

Our website now lists “New Arrivals” to our collection, just click on that heading on the home page.  Newest acquisitions are listed at the top of each sub-heading.

Always check out our FaceBook page for new and upcoming events and to see photos of all the past activities.

We will now be listed on the “School Closing Network”.  During severe weather and hazardous road conditions the library might be closed.  When possible this information will appear on the “crawl” on your local TV stations.  As always, we ask that you phone the library before venturing out in such conditions.

Come by and say hi!

Filomena, Sharon and Denise.
