You are NOT going to believe this!

We have tons of awesome programs coming up in September. To kick off the month we have National Library Card Sign-Up month. If you, or someone you know, would like to get a library card for the first time not only will you receive the card (and all of the amazing resources that come with it), but you will get a library bag with some great goodies to enjoy. Here are some important dates to remember for the month:

September 13th is the library’s annual Touch-A-Truck from 10:00-1:00.

September 20th Don’t forget about the Best-Ever Book Club! They meet at 2.

September 21-st-27th we are holding an Instagram competition in honor of Banned Books Week. There will be flyers at the front desk with the contest rules. There is no age limit, and the winner will receive a $25 Wal-Mart gift card.

September 25th Will be our kick-off party for the Teen #TBT Movie @ 6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone will be shown, and HP themed snacks will be provided.


Coming Soon…


The Best-Ever Book Club will be starting up again September 20th at 2:00. And guess what? They will be reading a BANNED book! In honor of banned books week, the group will be reading a banned or challenged book, but don’t worry it will still be age appropriate (books like Harry Potter and The Giver have been challenged many times). We encourage teens and adults both to come see what this awesome book club is reading. You may just be surprised! We are signing up now, so come put your name on the list and get started reading!

Back To School Craft

It’s almost that time…with school just around the corner its time to start thinking about buying supplies. Why not add your own personal touch? Elementary aged kids are invited to come make some fun and wacky pencil toppers, bookmarks, and magnets, OR they can bring in their own notebooks and decorate those with our craft supplies. The program is August 14th from 4:00-5:00 in the afternoon. We can’t wait to see you there!Back-to-School

Lego Club

Hey everybody, we need your help!This fall the Children’s library would like to start a lego club. However, to be able to do this we need legos. If anyone has legos they aren’t using anymore, please consider donating them, so we can expand our outreach. If you drop them off just say they are for Rebecca. Thank you so much for your help and support!300px-LEGO_logo.svg


Hey Guys!

We’ve been doing some moving around tryng to get the site updated. The links for eBooks, and the Kansas Library Catalog are now available under the “Account Services” tab. We’ve also got multiple places where you can search our catalog, to make it easier. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always contact the library.


Thanks for being patient with us!

Summer Reading

Now that summer is underway it’s a great time to stop by the library! We’ve got lots of activities going on for kids. Fridays at three o’clock we are showing movies, so make sure you come out for those, especially now that it’s getting hot! We’ve also got programs for elementary age kids and teens this summer. We have art projects, science experiments, Star Wars Characters, and much more. Come on in and grab a schedule to see what we have going on!
