Thanks to everyone who brought their talents for us to view, at the Art Exhibit.

We had a nice turn out, and we heard many say “I did not know he/she did that.” So again thanks for viewing and a very special thanks for those that exposed themselves with their hidden talent.

Cupcakes – Yum

We would like to thank First Community Credit Union for sponsoring the cupcake decorating event. The kids had a great time.

To all the kids who decorated cupcakes, SUPER JOB! We had a tough time figuring out winners. But we have them in alphabetical order:

Reese Bailey
Cale Benson
Lauryn Bladow
Elizabeth Helbling
Izzy Hernandez
Jackie Kluge
Zoie Krump
Denver Nelson

Art Exhibit

If you are artsy in anyway, think about showing your talent off during Oktober Fest.  The Library hosts an art exhibit and anyone can display their work.

Just bring it in before 1pm on Friday the 29th of September.


Tuesday – 8:30am to noon, 1 to 7pm
Wednesday and Thursday – 8:30am to noon, 1 to 5:00pm
Friday – 8:30am till noon
Saturday, Sunday, and Monday – Closed

Help Please

If you have any LEGOS lying around your house you would like to get rid of, please think of the library. Our theme this year for Summer Reading is “Build a Better World” and Legos are the perfect addition to the library to let the children imagine and build. I would prefer the smaller Legos as the activities will be done with older children and they may frown on using the Duplo blocks.  However I will be happy with ALL DONATIONS.
