Children's Preschool Storytime in the Park - We are excited to announce that we will resume Children's Preschool Storytime starting Sept. 10th at 9:00 a.m.  To keep us all healthy we will be meeting at South Park where we can easily socially distance and have lots of fresh air.  *Just a friendly reminder that this is not a drop off program. Children should be accompanied.

Library Time for Children with ASD and Their Family - Beginning Saturday, September 5th, the library will open early for children who struggle with sensory challenges. Staff members will be on hand to introduce parents and children to equipment and processes that we hope will provide a welcoming environment. This special library time will run from 9 am- 10 am. Call the library to speak with April if you have questions.

Women's Suffrage Centennial - A celebration event will be hosted by our local Home and Community Education group in the program room in September:
 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm on Friday, September 25th; 10:00 am - 12:00 pm on Saturday, September 26th; and 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 27th.
There will  be a displays from the Smithsonian Institute. 

September is Library Card Sign Up Month Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to encourage everyone to sign up for their own library card.
If you have the chance, please spread the word that the library is open and actively serving its patrons. Let your friends and family members who don't use library services, know that there are some great benefits to having a library card. For those who live in the district, a library card is absolutely free!
New patrons who sign up for a library card in September will receive a goody bag and be entered to win Gibson Bucks. Existing patrons, who stop in, can have their fines forgiven.

So Many Ways to Use Your Library Card - Because it is Library Card Sign-Up month, we thought, each week,  we'd share a few ways in which to use your card. 
> Research new job opportunities
> Find a list of community organizations
> Decide on the best purchase by using a consumer guide
> Check out your favorite magazine
> Use to learn about local history
> Check out an audiobook for your commute (digital or on CD.)
> Trace your family tree
> Attend Story Hour with your child
> Pick up voter registration information
