Library Decorations

Well it's a new year and although the holiday decorations and artworks are about to come down, new posters and displays will be replacing them throughout the next couple of months.  All of the submissions for the public bulletin board were awesome!  Be on the lookout for upcoming holiday coloring pages.  If you have any recommendations or creative ideas you would like to share, please let us know.  We are looking forward to putting up more patron-created art in the near future.

January is National Soup Month!

 

Did you know that January is National Soup Month?  Makes sense, right?  January is the first full month of Winter, and aside from cold soups like gazpacho, soups are traditionally craved, crafted, and consumed during the colder months of the year.

If you or anyone else is feeling like this, come by the library every Saturday in the month of January and February. We have (Tech Tutors) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. available to help you. Bring your Nook, Kindle, IPod’s, I Pad or any other E-reader. There are books available on our catalog to help. No fear Northwest Branch is here.
