Dear Library Friends, 


I hope everyone is well and ready for school in whatever form your family has chosen. Please remember, the library is open and available to help with resources and information as you navigate this school year.


The Presidential election will take place on November 3, 2020. If you need to register to vote, update your voting information, or wish to request an absentee ballot, we have the forms available at the library.


If you have not completed your 2020 census, there is still time. You can complete by mail, phone, or online. Per 2020 Census’ website, “The Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.”

Just a reminder, the library will be closed on Monday, September 7, 2020 in honor of Labor Day.


If you have any questions or concerns, I am available for a chat. 

Thank you, Amee






Virtual Storytime


Starting September 3rd, join Miss Megan on Facebook for virtual storytime. Every Thursday morning at 10:00 am a new storytime will be posted. That week’s storytime will be available for viewing for one week.


Also, each week a new individual bagged activity will be placed in a tub outside by the front door of the library. This way, even though we can’t be together, storytimers will still have something fun to do!


           3rd - Colors                                   17th - Apples

           10th - Weather                             24th - Fish/Fishing


R.E.A.L Homeschool Group


In order to keep us all safe and social distance, R.E.A.L will be meeting virtually.

We will be using Zoom for our meetings. Our first meeting will be Tuesday, September 15th at 1:00pm. If you are interested in joining our group this year, please call Miss Megan so she can get you the Zoom and program information. 


Pinterest Take and Make


A monthly project (limited to 20 kits) will be available in the tub outside. First come, first served for the kits. The library will provide supplies. For this project, you will need to supply scissors and a glue stick.

Albe’s Book

September 15, 2020 at 7:00pm


Our September selection is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This book was chosen in honor of American Library Association’s Banned Book Week September 27 through October 3, 2020. The Outsiders was #38 on ALA’s Top 100 Challenges between the years 1990-1999. It was challenged due to the depiction of gangs, gang violence,

alcohol use, smoking, and most characters are from broken homes
