QR codes for Picture books!!
Wanted to let you know about the QR codes you will begin seeing on some of our picture books. For the last few years, we have been making story hour videos and recording ourselves reading picture books out loud. I finally uploaded the individual videos to our youtube account and made QR code links to tape to the front of the specific picture books.
All you have to do is scan the code with your camera app and you will be taken directly to the youtube link and our fabulous staff reading the book out loud :)
I have also linked to other sites such as 'storyline online' and 'brightly story time' where read-a-louds can also be found. Soon, I will the links posted here on weebly as well so you'll just have to click and watch/listen to the story :)
Libby/Overdrive is here!
All our patrons have access to Libby/Overdrive, which is our new ebook/eaudio service. Libby has picture books, juvenile and young adult fiction and non-fiction, as well as audiobooks and read-a-longs. Click the image to go to Libby :)
All you'll need is your library card and PIN you use when you login to your library account.

Postponing Story Hours
We apologize but given rising COVID numbers, the library has opted to postpone story hours until the week of January 31.
At that time, we should be able to start up again but in the meantime, head on over to the story hour tab to see what crafts we were going to have your kids do and what books we wanted to read to them :)
Thanks for all the understanding,
Miss Laura, along with Miss Christie and Miss Carol
NEW: Speedy Reader Kits for kids ...
Speedy Reader kits are collections of series books, or a set of books by a particular author, that can be checked out as a whole. There may be ten books in the series but they will only take up one space on your card.
It's a small collection at the moment but it will continue to grow and is housed beside the NEW kids books.
You have to remember, these are not cheap collections so if the whole set needs replacing, it may range anywhere from $45-$80+. Individual book prices and collection prices are listed on the outside of the set container.
Checkout period will still be three weeks with one renewal (total of six weeks).
We hope that our speedy readers out there will have a good time with these and parents will rejoice at not having to field questions of 'when is the next book coming in?'
