Updated Hours of Operation

After a 6-month trial being open on Tuesday nights, analysis of the patronage during those hours did not support being open at that time. We are open 7 days a week to best serve our patrons, however, we always seek feedback to serve YOU better. Watch for an upcoming survey regarding our hours.

January’s 100 % Certainty Book Club meeting discussing “Finding Meaning” is rescheduled to Monday, February 20, 2020 @ 2:00pm. Email to register and let us know you are coming.

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am -Put on your warm, winter clothes and visit this drop-in group for parents and children 2 years old and under. A group full of great conversation, and a safe place for children to socialize with others their own age.

LEGO Club: Wednesday afternoons, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm – This drop-in program for children ages 6-12 has a brand new build challenge every single week. As your child’s skills grow they can also attempt the weekly “Expert Build Challenge”. LEGO CLUB is often not just LEGO! We also have lots of fun incorporating other STEM activities and experiments each week along with building our LEGO creations.

Story Time: Friday mornings, 10:30 am – 11:30 am -This is a drop-in group full of singing, dancing, and stories. Each week we have a themed craft that connects to what we learned from our story. Visit Story Time, and leave with new friends and amazing art creations. For our first Story Time of 2020 we will be hosting our good friend Carolyn j. Morris! 

She will be bringing her stories, songs, and a special craft for us!
