Learn to Play kubb
This ancient Viking game is becoming very popular again - join us Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 pm in Habermann Park where Madison Kubb will teach us how to play. This hand-on, interactive program is for all ages YOUNG AND OLD and it's a game everybody can play - your yard is probably the perfect pitch! We're excited to try tossing wooden batons and showing our Viking-fierce face!
Summer Junior Volunteers
We're looking for kids to help us during our Summer Library Program! Right now we're only taking applications from kids who are finishing FOURTH GRADE (info letter) - print the application form, complete it, and submit it to the library by Friday, May 24.
Once the fourth-going-into-fifth kids have the opportunity to apply, we'll open up the remaining timeslots to older kids who have volunteered in the past. Watch this webpage for updates!
Library Kicks Off New Early-Childhood Program
We're excited about our new early-literacy initiative "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten," a way the library can help parents celebrate the milestones in their child's growth and get kids ready for learning. Parents can enroll their child anytime (new babies are born every day!) and the program has a flexible end-date of kindergarten.
Learn more on the program webpage.
Daffodils Mean Spring!
The library is honored to have been the site of last fall's Helen & Lyle Bohlman Daffodil & Community Beautification Fund plantings - more than 700 bulbs were planted in Peg's Green Grove and along the front of the library building.
This is our first bloom cycle - we're so excited!

How Valuable Is The Library In Your Life?
Take a minute with the value calculator to see just how much the library services you're using are worth. What would you have to pay, if the library didn't exist?
Once you've had the chance to plug in your numbers and calculate your personal library use, we encourage you to contact your government representatives and remind them how important libraries are to our community. Or, tell your story at Libraries for Real Life.
Our SCLS libraries are gathering unique tales about how libraries change lives. Have a story to tell? Tell it here.
