"A library book...is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, is their only capital." — Thomas Jefferson
Thanks to dozens of local businesses and individuals, we had a very successful Chili Lunch on Friday, October 30! It was our first try at an event like this.
Many thanks to Gettinger's Meats, FarmBoys Smokehouse BBQ, Takathemoke, Kroger, Dusty Flannery, and other donors who provided all the food and items needed. We didn't have to purchase a thing from our library funds!
Opening Tuesday morning, September 8th is the library's new Internet/Wifi Cafe.
Ever wish there was a nice place to sit and sip coffee, chat on your phone or laptop, read the newspaper or a magazine, peruse a good book? Try the RPL's new Internet/Wifi Cafe.
The first session of Toddler and Preschool Storytimes starts on Tuesday, September 8th. Miss Jan will share stories, fingerplays, and more with Toddlers ages 1 to 3. Miss Pam has stories and activities to share with Preschoolers who are 3 to 5 years old. Parents/grandparents can choose from a Tuesday or Thursday time for their little one. Please call the library at 932-3496 and find out the times available. Registration is required.
UPDATE: The county commissioners meeting of October 20 was not successful for us. We really appreciate those who attended and who contacted the commissioners in support of the library. We don't know what will happen, but it is unlikely we will be granted county-wide status. Your calls, emails, and notes to the commissioners are still appreciated. Don't stop. We won't give up.
Thank you all so much!
