  • A Summer Reading Program is held every year during the summer months.  Watch for dates and subjects.
  • We also have the Lego Club on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays during the school year. This is for ages 7 and up, and starts at approximately 3:45. Clean up time is 4:45.
  • There is an ongoing incentive program. Children read in the library for a certain period of time, and receive prizes.
  • We have several puzzles, coloring books, colors, and games available for them to use in the library also.
  • If they just want to relax and watch a movie, they may use the entertainment room. Mom and Dad can join them if they would like.         
  • There is also a Wii and Wii games available for use in the entertainment room. These can be used by ages 8 and up.                                                                                                                                                                                   

FourtWe have over 2 dozen puppets for the children to play with in the puppet theater. Puppets are also available for 1 week check outs. een puppets were donated to the library

by the Jim Hill family. The Library bought a

puppet theater for the children to have their

own plays.  The boys and girls love to choose

a puppet and get into the theater and

pretend they are a monkey, dog, cat or any

of the other animals available.
