December 25, 2014 - Holiday Greetings

You may or may not be reading this on Christmas Day. No matter when you are reading it, let me extend the warmest holiday greetings of the season from the entire library staff. No matter how you celebrate the holidays that group around this time of year, we hope this time of year is merry and bright for you and your family. While the library closed (closes depending on when you read this) at 3 p.m. on December 24th and is closed all day on the 25th, we will be open for business as per usual on Friday, December 26th. Even on these days when the library is closed you can still visit our website through LinkCat place holds on books and ebooks and if you’re very lucky you could possibly download an ebook from Overdrive or pick up an electronic hold that may have become available while the library is closed. Below are some of the new titles that arrived recently. Enjoy them, and have a very, merry Christmas!
