The Library Needs YOU!

help

Help us beat the number of items checked out last year in the month of April!

We need 5500 items  checked out before the end of the month!

That is about 917 items a day !

So, grab your library card and walk, run, bike or drive to the library and pick up some books, movies, music cds and more and help us reach our goal!

Thank you!

            • Why do you like your library? We want to know! Fill out a form telling us why you like the library and be entered into a drawing to win a restaurant gift certificate.
            • Help us show how much our community loves its library with the “[Not-So] Leaning Tower of Library Week”. We’re going to build the largest Lego tower ever in Matheson Lego Club history and everyone can help! At checkout, patrons will receive Legos to add to the tower. Do your part to help by checking out LOTS of materials this week.

Monday, April 14: Head to the library for free coffee and donuts provided by the staff all morning long! PLUS: During Ms. Pattie’s “Family Night Out” program, the staff will be providing a hot dinner to families so you don’t have to rush for a meal before coming to the library.
