TEMPORARY LIBRARY HOURS
Until further notice, the library will be open from 9 â€“ 6 Monday through Friday, 9 â€“ 5 Saturday and closed on Sunday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
CIRCLE TIME SIGNUP
Preschool Circle Time registrations are still available! Circle Time is for children ages 0 â€“ 5 and is scheduled for Wednesday mornings at 10:30.
STEVENS COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
The SCGS meets every first Thursday of the month at 1:00 at the library. Contact Cathy Clark for additional information, or simply come to the meeting.
NEW COPIER CHARGES
Our new patron copier now has a vend station attached. This means that patrons will pay in advance for copies made. The vend station accepts coins and bills. The library does not carry extra change for the machine. Both regular and legal sized copies will be 25 cents, while 11 x 17 sheets will cost 40 cents.
CHANGES AT THE LIBRARY
The library will be making some changes in the next few weeks â€“ we will be adding more electrical outlets throughout the library for patrons in need of charging stations for their computers, handheld devices and e-readers. We hope that the additional outlets will eliminate the need for cords strung around corners and across doorways! Following the installation of the outlets, we will be re-carpeting the entire library. We have hired a shelf mover that will be able to shift most of our shelves without emptying them of books! Although we may have to section off areas while the shelves are moved and the carpet is installed, we hope to do this with the least amount of inconvenience for our patrons, and plan to remain open if possible. Stay tuned!
The numbers of unaccompanied children coming to the library after school have increased tremendously this year, and with the change of seasons, we are concerned about the safety of our after-school crowd. Lost children, minor injuries and severe weather are all concerns with children who are without adult supervision. Because we never know when and where an emergency may occur, we are implementing a sign-in for every minor that comes to the library without a parent. Each child will log in at the front desk with their name and a phone number where a parent or guardian may be reached. Parents and/or guardians need to make sure that children know the full name and correct contact number for the adult to be called. If an issue arises, library staff can contact the parent or guardian and resolve the matter immediately.
CLICK FOR BABIES
