March 2017 Newsletter

 

With all of the wild weather we have been having, this is a good time to remind parents that they must be able to pick up children at the library quickly.  The library building is not a tornado shelter, and we cannot transport children in a private vehicle to a shelter.  We certainly don’t want to turn children out to walk home in severe weather.  The library board passed a policy that parents will be called to come get children in case of a severe thunderstorm or tornado warning.  Parents need to make arrangements for that possibility.

We have new children’s books, thanks to the chocolate sale fundraiser.  Some the new adult titles are Melt by Helen Hardt, the Christmas Wish by Nora Roberts, Christmas in Alaska by Debbie Macomber, Britt-Marie was Here by Fredrik Backman, Woman of God by James Patterson, and many new donations.  Our new DVD’s include The Jungle Book, Tyler Perry’s Boo, Kevin Hart; What Now?, and Blair Witch (2016).

We still have a few Red Folders available for Operation Red Folder, the medical information form that can be placed on the front of the refrigerator.  If you have picked up your Red Folder, make sure you fill out the form!

Our community services include computer/ internet access, free wifi, laminator, copier/printer/scanner, document shredder, books, DVD’s, audio books, reference desk, bulletin board, magazines, meeting room with computer projector and screen, collections of Box Tops for Education, Cash; Not Trash for the preschool, and interlibrary loans.  We still have the free book bench.  If you can think of any service that would valuable to the community, please let us know!
