July Newsletter

The Library is open!  We are following our normal hours of operation.  The Library Board voted at the last meeting that masks are recommend within in the library, but not required.  They also lifted the limit of 10 persons in the library at one time.  As of now, we are operating as before.   We can receive books from other libraries, so if we don’t have book you want, we can probably get it for you.  This situation is subject to change if the Neosho County Health Department issues any directives.

Our Summer Reading Program is underway.  There is still time to sign up for both children and adults.  The theme this summer is “Imagine Your Story” with a focus on fairy tales and imagination.  Come be a unicorn, a magician, a knight, a princess, a king or a queen! Join the fun!

We were so pleased to be able to welcome three newborns to Thayer this month with our “Welcome, Baby” program.  Please continue to let us know when there is a new arrival in Thayer.  We have presents!

For those children who have been around awhile, we invite their parents to sign them up for our free “1,000 Books before Kindergarten” program.  Kids get to choose a book to keep after every hundred books they have listened to.  The books don’t have to be from our library, and anyone can read the books, grandparents, caregivers, siblings.  Have your child join our Wall of Fame!

Movie Nights have returned!  On the third Friday of every month during the warm months, we will be showing a family-friendly movie free of charge for the whole community.  Bring your blankets, lawn chairs, and snacks and join us for a movie under the stars.  The movie will begin as soon as it is dark enough to see, usually a half hour after sunset.   Rain cancels.

We are here to serve the community.  Please let us know if there a service or a need that we can provide to better meet the needs of our patrons and fellow citizens.

*Update – Beginning July 3, 2020, masks will be required inside the building.
