February Newsletter


            Book Sale – Book Sale – Book Sale!!!

The Friend’s Annual Book Sale and Membership Drive will be April 15, 16 & 17.  Remember to bring your gently used books to the library for this fundraiser.  Do keep us in mind as you sort books, clean your homes, or as you finish reading a book you don’t intend to keep.  Reminder – we do not take text books, Reader’s Digest condensed books, old books, magazines, music, or miscellaneous items.           





            Income Tax forms are now available in the library.  We have both Federal and State forms.  We do have some reproducible forms, also. It is getting increasingly more difficult to receive the forms.  The future is with technology and going paperless.  We will have to wait and see what amount of forms we will be able to receive next year.




            The library will be hosting a Valentine’s Party on Feb. 5 from 3:30-4:30 p.m.  We will have a craft and refreshments.  Please ask at the front desk about the party and sign up.
