HELP US CELEBRATE!

Our library has been in our present building for an unbelieveable TWENTY YEARS!
We moved here in March 1999 after spending 24 years in the storefront building that is now China King. No wonder we needed new carpet so badly. To celebrate our 20-year anniversary and our new carpet, the Library Board and Library Staff will host an open house on Thursday, March 14, from 4:00 PM till 6:00 PM. Come in, have some refreshments, and see what improvements have been made to our building. This is your tax dollars hard at work so we hope you will join us on this momentous occasion.

Members of the Word Weavers will also be here to talk about their writing group and to sign copies of their books.
(Yes, there are published authors among us!)

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?

As the library marks our twentieth year in this location, 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.

Wedding season is fast-approaching and they make wonderful gifts.
