Ice Cream Social

Staff would like to thank everyone, especially the kids and parents/caregivers, who participated in our new "summer challenge program" this summer. It was fun seeing so many of our patrons this summer. We thank everyone for their feedback and can't wait until next summer!

Special thank you to our local Hemlock McDonald's who donated ice cream and french fries coupons for the library to use as prizes and to a private donor who provided financial support allowing us to do more this year. We value their support.
With ITC grant funding, the library is hosting a speaker series this year being held "after hours at the library". We are excited for this new program at your library and the community enjoys the variety of speakers visiting the library between April and September. Admission is FREE for this program!
