THE DOORS ARE OPEN! OUR NEW CARPET IS IN!

Come see for yourself! We have beautiful new carpet and wood laminate.  Thanks to all the people who made this possible and a SPECIAL THANKS to all our patrons for their patience and understanding during the month of December. We missed you!


WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?

As the library starts the new year, we turn to thoughts of scheduling computer classes and purchasing new material with funds available through the Hatchie River Regional Library.

What do you want?

We will be providing several more classes with our technology training grant and we are open to suggestions for future classes. 

 We always try to purchase new books from popular authors, but we are very happy to take suggestions. Remember that this is your library and we do want to provide our public with great selections.
