Part of Operation Read: Code Name B.E.A.R. (Books Everywhere, Always Reading), and thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, the blue Little Free Library is available to everyone. Anyone may use it — neighbors, friends, and passersby. The books are always free. Take a book, Share a Book, or Leave a Book at another little free library.
The library will be closed on Monday, May 28, 2018, in observance of Memorial Day.

The library was beautifully decorated inside and out this holiday season thanks to the creativity and hard work from the volunteers of Vision.
Local children decorated gingerbread houses and personalized snowman ornaments on December 9, 2017 and had the chance to purchase gifts and have them gift wrapped. Many thanks to the Girl Scout troop, Junior Honor Society students, and Joann Lewis for all their hard work in preparing and working this event.
Over 120 patrons visited the library on Saturday, November 18, 2017 to support the Friends of the Library’s annual bake sale and to see Kevin Wurster entertain the packed audience with his magic tricks and illusions. Both parents and children were spellbound for the one-hour show. Many thanks to The Friends of the Library who hosted this event.
Mrs. Suzanne Brahm, the library’s director for 32 years, retired on October 31, 2017. A farewell hosted by the Friends of the Library, and open to the entire community, was very well-attended. Many friends and civic groups for whom Mrs. Brahm has tirelessly assisted over the years, as well as former story time attendees (many now grown with young families of their own) stopped by to wish her well in her retirement.
