WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE IN YOUR LIBRARY?



Beginning in September, we will have a survey available where you can tell us what you love about your library and what you wish the library had more of! Graphic novels, audiobooks, books about a certain topic, certain movies - let us know! We want to serve the community as efficiently as possible and to do that, we need your feedback!




COMMUNITY BOOK REVIEWS!

No photo description available.

Did you recently read a book that you just loved? Tell us all about it! Beginning in September, we will have cards at the front desk where you can write a review of a book you checked out from our library. With your permission, we would love to share reviews on Facebook so that all of our community can enjoy the books you recently read!

WHAT IS THE BROWN BAG BOOK CLUB READING?

The Brown Bag Book Club will meet on Wednesday, November 13, at 12:00 noon to discuss 

Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah.

Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone's Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it's the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It's about promises and secrets and betrayals. And, ultimately, about the one person who really, really knows you - and knows what has the power to hurt you . . . and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you'll never forget . . .
one you'll want to pass on to your best friend. 

Join us for this book club discussion!

"A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading."
