June 3 from 2-3pm we're kicking off an entire summer of fun at the County Library with a sidewalk party! Come see what amazing events we have planned, sign up for one of our Summer Reading Clubs, get a library card, enjoy a free popsicle, and so much more! This is a drop-in party so show up when you can and stay as long or as little as you like.

As part of its "Oceans of Possibilities" Summer Reading Program, the County Library will host a Mario Kart Video Game Tournament on Thursday, June 9 at 3:30. Snacks will be served, and top finishers will receive trophies and gift cards. Register in-person at the County Library or online by clicking here

The County Library will be closed on Monday, May 30 in observance of Memorial Day. Regular hours will resume on Tuesday, May 31. For the schedules of our other locations, please contact these libraries directly.

We invite children and their caregivers to join us for our weekly storytime programs! Preschool Storytime meets Tuesday mornings at 10:30 AM and appeals most to children ages 2-5. We check on our puppet friend, Hedgie, read books and sing songs.
New Program Alert! Starting on April 6, the County Library will now offer a weekly storytime program for school-aged children every Wednesday morning at 10:30 AM. School-aged kids, approximately ages 5-10, are invited to join us for longer read-alouds, great nonfiction titles, and even chapter book recommendations! This program will appeal to homeschoolers, preschool storytime graduates, and public school friends on holiday breaks.
Books & Babies meets Thursday mornings at 10:30 AM and is designed to engage infants 24 months and younger with their caregivers. At Books and Babies we read one short book, sing many songs, recite nursery rhymes, and play with puppets. At all our storytimes we make some noise and move around!
 
All children and their families are welcome at our storytime programs.  Call the library at (540) 984-8200 if you have any questions.
