Storytime/Kids’ Crafts with Miss Faith!

Every Thursday at 6:00pm

Drop into the Library every Thursday night for storytime or craft with Miss Faith! Perfect for ages 3-7, but all are welcome. Drop-In (no registration or library card necessary).

Read to Bella!

Every Thursday from 2:00-4:00pm, beginning June 8.

Young readers are invited to sit and read with Bella. Reading to a therapy dog provides children a stress-free environment where they can create positive reading experiences.

Bella is an eight-year-old therapy dog and certified by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. Bella will be at the library with her human, Dr. Bernie Engelhard.

Sign-up when you arrive to save a timed session with Bella. Session length dependent upon demand. Intended for children ages 4 and up (with some ability to read).

Let the library come to you. Request a visit!

Library visits are available, free of charge to daycares, schools, homeschool groups, and other community groups in the area. We are also happy to maintain a presence at any local event where we can meet with families and share our services. Program types vary by age but include storytime visits, family literacy training, database and research instruction, book talks, crafts, and more! Please contact Andy Myers at to set up a visit.
