Lego Club is scheduled to meet this Friday, September 2nd at 4:00 pm.
Story-Time & Craft will be on Monday, August 22nd at 4:30 pm. We will be reading “A Letter to My Teacher” by Deborah Hopkinson and making teacher gifts. With enough participation this program will continue on every fourth Monday of each month.
The free book shelf is FULL of both adult and children’s book. Please feel free to come and take as many as you like. **The library does NOT currently have extra boxes or bags to provide to patrons who carry out several items. We apologize for this, but you may bring your own to load up.
The library does not charge late fees. The decision to go fine-free was made by the Library Board in 2020. This means that you will not be charged for returning a book past the due date. However, if an item (book, DVD, or audio) is lost or damaged, the patron WILL be responsible for the cost of that item.
These costs vary. If you need to know the price of an item, you may call or visit the library. Have the card number or name ready.
Please be aware that the circle driveway next to the library is NOT part of our property. This is a private drive, and the owners have asked that library patrons refrain from parking there as is blocks their access to the garage.
The library is NOT responsible for any fines or issues that may arise if this request is ignored. There are signs clearly stating that there is no parking. Library patrons are welcome to park on the street, or at the Methodist Church (as long as there are no services taking place). After hours, patrons my also use the library’s own drive way.
The library’s WiFi Garden is open 24/7. This is located on the south side of the building where the 2nd entrance used to be. Patrons are welcome to use this area to their convenience. However, we must insist that patrons use the garbage can at the end of the driveway to dispose of any trash.
The Discovery Park of America (DPA) and the Obion River Regional Library System are once again teaming up for the annual Lego Competition. Each month (August – November) will have a theme, as always. Builders may submit their creations to the library on their own, or during monthly Lego Club. Submissions will be separated into categories, and one winner from each category will be selected to take to DPA. Those winners will be on display along with others from different libraries in the Obion River Regional system. DPA will select a favorite from each category, and if your creation is selected, you will receive a free pass to the park. At the end of the four month cycle, DPA will select an overall winner in each category from the pool of favorites. For August, we had two submissions. One for the 6-11 age group, and the other for the Partner Build group.
What’s the librarian reading?
Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover
I just started this, and let me begin by saying that if this one doesn’t make me a Hoover fan it just wasn’t meant to be. I’ve tried. Verity was supposed to be her best, and I was not impressed at all.
There is a lot of material put out by Hoover and most of it is available on Kindle Unlimited, so I want to like her. I’m just not sure I can.
