Therapy Dog Visits
Earl, Andy, and Baxter have come to the library over the past year to listen to kids read, or to just get lots of love and attention from patrons of all ages! As soon as the dogs settle in for the summer, they will visit our mini-library on Saturday mornings. Stay tuned!
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.
