This past summer was our first try at “Grab N’ Go” crafts. With no In-Library programing, patrons came to the library go pick up their craft supplies and instructions then sent us pictures of the complete project and we posted them on our Facebook page. The library has programing year round for all ages. We try to plan something for everyone. We have story time for the little ones [Wednesday @ 10 AM] Food Club for the adults [Friday @ 12PM] We are hoping to be able to do these again soon. The pandemic has put something on hold. We are hoping things get back to
at least semi normal pretty soon.
At the end of 2020 the library owned;
1,765 DVD’s and TV shows
17 Audio books
This library also had Halloween Masks that can be checked out. No other library has that.
Hoopla is also Free with a Library Card
We were not able to have some of our usual fundraising this past year. No Taco Dinner and No Garage Sale, but we did still have our Raffles. Filed for some grants that were specific to the pandemic for libraries and received some very generous donations, that helped us immensely. Still don’t know what 2021 will hold but we will power through and do what we can.
Keep an eye on the library Facebook page for up and coming events.
