April 2021 Newsletter

Director's Corner As we move forward into spring, we know you will be busy with all your outdoor activities, such as gardening, sports, or lawn care. Don’t forget to stop by the library to pick up books or movies to help you relax and unwind. We are fully open to the public for our regular hours (Tuesday—Friday 10:00 AM—7:00 PM, Saturday 10:00 AM—2:00 PM). Meanwhile, your librarians are busy making plans and preparing supplies for our upcoming Summer Reading Program that starts June 1. We are excited about the 2021 theme and activities and look forward to sharing all the details in the coming weeks.
