Welcome to the Children's Page!

Kyler Grant Open House

Wednesday, April 11, 5:00-7:00

The library recently received a $5000 grant from the Dorothy Louise Kyler Foundation, which has enabled us to purchase over 550 titles for the childrens room - board books, DVDs, audio books, DK Eyewitness books, beginning readers, graphic novels, and chapter books.

We invite children through grade 6 and their families - and anyone who works with this age of children - to come to our open house where we will introduce and showcase much of the new materials. Suggested reading lists will be available. Refreshments will be served.
