Library begins its holiday events
Own a Piece of History
The Churchill County Museum & Archives presents images from their photography collection through October. These items will be auctioned off at a museum fundraiser in November.
Food for Fines
Through December 2 return any overdue library material and pay your fine with a non-perishable food item.
One food item for each overdue library item. All food will be donated to Out of Egypt Food Pantry.
Holiday Celebration and Wreath and Centerpiece Extravaganza
Create a holiday wreath or centerpiece to donate to the library where it will be sold at silent auction.
Donors may choose any theme or color scheme and can be based on the type of business you conduct, a favorite hobby, or whatever strikes your fancy.
Wreaths and centerpieces can be delivered beginning Oct.31. The silent auction ends on Dec.7 with the Holiday Celebration. This fundraiser and event is sponsored by the Churchill Library Association. Proceeds benefit the Churchill County Library community through programs and events.
The library offers programs for youth of all ages every Friday afternoon between 2-4 p.m.
Topics include STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) related programs including Lego Club and Science Club.
Storytime is held each Wednesday and Thursday at 11 a.m. Join us for stories, songs, a craft, and valuable tips to help your child get ready to read.
