Did you know we have a monthly book club?  Its true!

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday  of the month at 7 PM.  September - May

Stop in or contact the library for details.

Book Club is starting soon!

Join us on Teusday, September 12th for Book Club as we discuss "The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead.

Tuesday, September 12th at 7 PM.

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood - where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned and, though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

Stop in to get your copy today!

Bill Jamerson- September 5th at 6:30 PM in the Library Theater(For Adults and Youth)
“Up in the U.P.!" is an hour-long program of songs and stories about growing up in the iron mining towns of Michigan's Upper Peninsula during The Great Depression. These stories are similar to the experiences of the immigrant miners of the Mesabi Range in Minnesota. Dressed in costume and with guitar in hand, Jamerson performs original songs and tells stories about how the immigrants came to America, what they found when they got here, how they adapted to the new world and what life was like working in the mines. He sings songs about pasties (the miners favorite lunch), drilling for iron ore, thimble berries (which grew along the Lake Superior shore), sailing schooners that transported the ore, ski jumping which was brought by the Norwegians and songs about the Finnish culture with their love of saunas. The program is as informative as it is entertaining, and is family friendly.

We are extremely sad in the library today. Our Summer Owl has disappeared.
The children love to search and find him.

We are assuming that a child took him by mistake. If you have him, please bring him back. We just want him back in the library.
