WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
Since our wild and crazy summer is over, the library is turning 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.
State funds have become available through the Hatchie River Regional Library so be sure and tell us what you want to see on our shelves. 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.
STORYTIME HALLOWEEN PARTY!
Our annual Storytime Halloween party will be held on Tuesday, October 30, at 10:00 AM.
Costumes, cookies, and Halloween stories will be involved.
CAN'T FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?
We might be able to borrow what you want from another library. Ask about this at the circulation desk.

Old October's purt' nigh gone,
And the frosts is comin' on
Little heavier every day --
Like our hearts is thataway!
I love old October so.
