Getting cabin fever with this cold winter weather? Remember there is coffee every Monday morning at 8 AM, and a jigsaw puzzle out and ready for you to work on. It’s always warm and friendly at the library.
Little Heathens, by Mildred Armstrong Kalish, is the January 23, 1 PM book club discussion selection. This is Kalish’s story of growing up on an Iowa farm during the depths of the Great Depression. Grab a copy of this book from the library and join the discussion.

Enjoy winter in a warm and magical way when you stop in to view the amazing paper snowflake cutouts that are gracing library windows. Viewing them is like a game since each snowflake has a special picture cut into it. Thank you, Darlene Hopkins, for sharing these works of art created by your daughter Sandra. Visit us to enjoy the snowflakes before they melt away.
Why rent or buy movies when you can borrow them from the library? We have more than 2,700 titles available at no charge for a week.
This year there were 577 books in our Christmas book tree. Congratulations to Tasha Villa for having the closest guess.
