Babysit a Box of Books
It's happening!!! Construction is about to begin on our new library and we have to have the building emptied by May 15th! We will have a mini-library set up at the Derby Community Church where new books and a small collection of other items will reside for the summer. More on this later--for now, please come to the library within the next week or so and take out 20 older books of your choosing to "babysit" over the summer. You'll need to bring a box or bag for the books, and we'll check them out for you to keep until the new library opens in the fall.
Baxter the Dog Visits
Baxter, a beautiful golden retriever will visit the library on various Saturdays to listen to kids read. He and his handler, Jen, will be here on Saturday, April 29th from 10:30 a.m. until noon to greet kids of all ages as well as adults who'd like to give some loving attention. Please stop by and say hi.
Preschool Story Time
Preschool Story Time is every Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Join Miss Joanne for an exciting year of stories, songs, crafts, and games featuring Nursery Rhymes.
Family Movie Night
Join us for our next Family Movie Night on Friday, April 21st at 6:00 p.m. The feature will be Sing, and popcorn and water will be served.
Little Free Libraries
We now have two Little Free Libraries registered and on the LFL World map. Located in Scampy's Store in West Charleston and next to the Town Clerk's Office in Morgan, the little libraries are dedicated to former librarian Barbara Whitehill. Please visit them anytime and take a book or leave one-they are fully stocked with both adult and kids' books.
