The menu will be macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, sloppy joes, apple crisp, milk and water, and, BLACK OLIVES!!!! Take one last look at the old library / school cafeteria before it is demolished. The price is a donation to the library’s New Building Fund.

We are within a month (I hope) of moving to our new building so it’s time to talk about transition issues.
1. We are NOT accepting donations of any materials at this time (we will take your cash!) so don’t bring us books, CD’s, etc.
2. We are giving away FREE the following: donated books, puzzles, audiobooks, VCR tapes, vintage computer and music CDs, and miscellaneous junk. All this stuff is located at our main entrance on book carts. Help us out and take as much as you want. It will go in the trash on July 21st.
3. We are NOT having one last lunch in the school cafeteria on July 25th. We hope to have it at a later date, just not that particular day.
4. Expect disruptions of service over the next 2 months. We will close for up to a week to move our 10,000 item collection, supplies, files, furniture, etc. We may close for a day or 2 during demolition of the old building and for a day or 2 during pavement of the parking lot. We will try to get the word out as soon as possible for all closings. Keep an eye on this page.
5. During this time, you will NOT be fined for overdues. We will try to keep our book return accessible and empty.
If you have concerns, talk to Nadena. We aim to please and may be able to work something out due to particular circumstances.
A big shout out to all the volunteers who are begging us to help with the move and to David Miller and Miller’s Country Store on 285 which will provide lunch for those volunteers on moving day.

We are officially under way with our new building project. You will now park in the Presbyterian lot and enter either the side entrance on that side or the handicapped ramp to the front porch door. The book drop has been moved in front of the porch of the new main entrance. Hours remain the same.
