National Library Week “Welcome To Your Library”
National Library Week is the annual celebration of libraries, their staff, and what they stand for in our society. It has been a long and hard year, but we hope the tide is turning, and we will be able to welcome you once again into your library. We are not there quite yet, but we did not want this opportunity to pass to show you that we appreciate your patience.
Starting Monday, April 5, and through Saturday April 10, the library will have curbside bags available filled with goodies. Two special bags will have a $50.00 gift card, and a third bag will have an autographed book by Mary Monroe. Curbside bags will be available while supplies last. Please call the library for your pick up time at 708-748-4431.
