Laurie Hotz, Youth Services Director, and I recorded the City Talk program for this week. Laurie spoke about the upcoming Pre-school Storytime registration beginning on Thursday, September 13. The programs will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning September 19 and 20. The programs are for children ages 3 to 6 who haven’t started Kindergarten. Call the Children’s Reference Desk at 573-8167, ext. 242 or stop in to register your child for a weekly program.
I talked about the availability of an additional meeting room at the Library. We have repurposed the Coffee Shop space into a nice, small meeting room that will accommodate up to 15 people. The Friends of the Library provided the funding for the new carpet, paint and tables that were installed. If you are interested in booking a meeting room at the library, please call 573-8167, ext. 232 to reserve a room.
Our Bounce Back to the Library event was very successful last Saturday. The kids who came into the library received a great bouncy ball to take home. Outside, the Bouncy Thing provided some great entertainment. Again, thanks to the Friends for providing the funding for this great promotion. We’re very glad to see our Saturday patrons returning to the Library.
