We will be closed for President's Day, February 17.

  We are doing the ONE BOOK WYOMING program, which will be a book from Craig Johnson, these are to be read and passed on to someone else, and this is a state wide program that we chose to participate in.

We have our new copier, which includes a fax machine.  So we are ready to fulfill your copying needs.  Thanks for your patience while we were without a fax machine.

We continue to accept book and DVD donations!

Our children’s department is asking for anyone to donate snacks for the kids.  We serve snacks at story hour on Wednesday and later that afternoon for the after school kids.  Graham crackers, fruit snacks, and items like these would be a help. Snacks are not a budget item and someone took our donation money box that we use for the parties and snacks.
