Hello library lovers! Our Yuletide Festival is coming up soon! I’d like to give a special thank you to our Friends of the Library for their support for Yuletide this year. If you enjoy Yuletide or any other programs the library provides, please consider supporting our Friends group. Also, if you happen to have any spare card stock or paper stamping supplies you need to get rid of, the library would love to have them for some upcoming craft programs!

Library Ty’s Word of the Week


A tektite is a naturally found small lump of solid glass, commonly found in either spherical, teardrop, or button shapes. No one knows for sure how tektites are formed, but the leading theory is that they are debris ejected from impact craters.
