Special & Limited Time Programming

Mini Art Show

This fun program is for all ages.

Here’s how it works 🎨:

  • Pick up your mini canvas from the library and create your mini masterpiece. These canvases are teeny (2in x 2in), so get creative!
  • Art will be sorted by age group and put on display at the library.
  • You’ll be able to vote for your favorite in each age group (adult, teen, K-5th grade, and 5 years old and younger).
  • Winners will receive a small prize!

Our first Mini Art Show in April 2023 was a huge success! Be sure to follow us on social media, where we’ll announce the next one.

Seed Library

Season begins March 1.

Build your garden with seeds from the library! Take up to 10 packets per season.

We are currently accepting donations of both opened and unopened packets of seeds for this program!

Blind Date with a Book

January 29 – February 29

In this exciting February program, we gather a diverse collection of books from our shelves and wrap them in plain brown paper. Check one out and discover an author you’ve never tried, or a book you never thought you’d read. Who knows? Maybe you’ll fall in love!

Books in this program are selected for adult reading ages.

Fishing for a Good Book

January 29 – February 29

Just like Blind Date with a Book, Fishing for a Good Book is a fun February reading program, but for our younger crowd! Grab a book wrapped in plain brown paper from the display in the Children’s Department, and discover something brand new. You may just get hooked!

Books in this program are selected for 3rd-5th graders.


Families

Fiber Arts Club

Join a group of people who love knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, felting, or other yarn-related crafts, no matter the level of proficiency or the age.

Bring your own project, socialize, and get help if you need it. This is not a class, but help is provided if you are new to the craft.

View all meetings.

Summer Reading Program

We have a Summer Reading program for every age group! Toddlers, kids, teens, and adults can all participate in this fun summer program in which you read to win prizes. There are weekly prizes as well as a grand prize for each age group at the end of the program.

During the Summer Reading Program, we also offer free family entertainment each Wednesday afternoon. Our performers have included magicians, singers, wildlife experts, and many more!

Holiday Programming

We love celebrating the holidays with our patrons! We offer all day trick-or-treating on Halloween, Santa visits us at Christmastime, we ring in the New Year with Noon Year’s Eve, and more!

Check the calendar to see any upcoming special holiday programming!
