Free Books for Kids at Giveaway Event!

Bag of Books Giveaway for Kids (grades pre-k through 5th grade) on Wednesday, June 9th from 6-8 pm. Drive through our parking lot and pick up your free books from the car. Kids can choose a topic of interest (animals, comics, chapter books, picture books, mysteries, etc) and receive at least 3 books in a bag. Parents/Grandparents/Guardians can drive through without children and still pick up a bag of books. Also, be sure to check our calendar (on this website’s summer reading tab) for dates and times of upcoming summer shows on the lawn in front of the gazebo in June and July.

You can renew books in person, email, or by phone 948-4720.  Thank you for promptly checking for any library books, movies, and other materials.
