Sea Otter Awareness Week

Hey! Did you know that today is the beginning of Sea Otter Awareness Week

This week we will be featuring Sea Otters because even though we are not near any oceans, sea otters are still important to the ecosystem! (Plus I absolutely LOVE otters and helping out the environment). So please keep checking in every day for more information about the awesome Sea Otter!

Sea Otter Awareness Week always falls on the last week of September. People of various backgrounds participate in various events and activities to highlight the different issues that sea otter conservation faces.

Library Sign up Month

Did you know that with your library card, you can check out books, magazines, DVDs and even CDs? You also have access to our collection of E-books and E-magazines! We also have free Wi-Fi and computers for you to use. We also have a Seed library, which means you can get up to 5 packets of seeds for free.

To sign up for a library card, all need is your Driver’s license/ID with your current address and you can sign up today!

Don’t forget that we have Story Time for the little ones every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Studies show that children, who are read to in the home and who use the library, perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

Hope to see you soon!
