On Friday, Dec. 28 at 10:30 a.m., youngsters can drop by the library from some LEGO fun. For all ages. Children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult.
Snow boots are out and snow shovels primed. The library has a few reminders about wintertime procedures.
- Snow days: The library does not follow the school district snow day schedule. Library staff will plan to open any day unless travel is unsafe. Please call the library on snowy days to make sure we’re here.
- Coughs & sneezes: Please feel free to use the hand sanitizer and tissues provided at the circulation desk and throughout the library to protect yourself from stray germs.
- Early closing: On those days when the weather catches up with us, the library may close ahead of scheduled closing time. Please call ahead to make sure we’re open.
- Safe travels: Please keep in mind your own safety and feel free to call if you’re held up returning materials.
