February 2019 Newsletter

The library is excited to announce the beginning of a new program.  Welcome, Baby provides the parents of newborn Thayer residents with some board books, a small gift, and library information.  We need the public’s help in letting us know when the babies arrive.  You can contact the library in person, by phone, or on-line.  If the parents are first-time parents, we will include a parents’ guide for the first year.  Please help us welcome Thayer’s newest members.

February brings the annual library fundraiser.  Library board members and members of the Thayer Reading Club provide a wide array of chocolate and baked good treats.  For $5, you can fill a container with your choice of goodies.  This year the Chocolate Affair will be Sunday, Feb. 10th from 11 am until 2 pm at the library.  The funds we raise will be used to purchase new books for the Summer Reading Program, the Welcome, Baby program, and the Halloween book give-away.  Childhood literacy is so important!   We always appreciate the support that Thayer shows for the library.

We have been hearing a buzz about our new streaming service, Hoopla.  Patrons seem to really like the service.  Hoopla allows a library card holder to stream up to five free movies, ebooks, audio books, comics, music, and TV episodes to any device or computer.  Please come see us if you need a library card or need help setting up your account.
