New year, new books at the library

Happy New Year!

We are busy planning an exciting and fun-filled 2015 at the library. The repurpose project will be complete by the end of February, the Every Hero Has a Story themed Summer Reading Program is scheduled and a Lego Club is in the works and storytime will continue. Under consideration are a book club, movie night and speaker events. Anything you’d like to see happen? We are open to suggestions so let us know!

The library continues to offer services at the annex at the north end of the block while the repurpose project is underway. Stop by and check out a new book, DVD or book on CD. Internet access is also available. Watch the progress of the repurpose project online. Photographs and updates are available on the library website at http://www.churchillcountylibrary.org.
