In case you missed it last week, the library has started curbside book pickups. Until we can be open to the public, we can still serve you. Here’s what you will need to do: call between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. with your book order.
If you are unsure of what type of books you like, we will be glad to help you figure that out! You may also email us at [email protected] to place a book order. Please include your library card and phone number in the email.
We will give you a pickup time between 2-5 p.m., bag the books and bring them to your car. You may check out five items per card. Please put any books you are returning in the dropbox.
Staff members will retrieve them, sanitize them, and quarantine them for three days before putting them back on the shelves. If you have questions, or for more information, please call us at the library at 743-6533. We will be happy to help!
This past week, the staff has purchased some little carts to make transporting books around the library a bit easier. These carts have three-tiered baskets. They are perfect for holding books, and in this case, cats!
One staff member was curious to see if our library cat, Story, would let us push her around in the cart. She picked Story up, placed her in the top basket and waited. Story did not seem to mind at all because she settled down in that basket like it was meant for her.
Here comes the test; will Story let us push her around in the cart? Yes! Story knew she was being treated like the queen she is! She even placed her little paw on the hand that was pushing the cart. Story is truly a great cat!
World Bicycle Day
June 3 has been declared International World Bicycle Day. The bicycle has been in use for two centuries and is the most simple, reliable, and environmentally sustainable means of transportation.
The global holiday is meant to be enjoyed by all ages of people and is associated with promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Here is a funny little story of me versus a bicycle. I was at my aunt’s house, playing in the yard with my cousins. They had their bicycles out and I had asked if I could take one for a spin. Of course they said yes. I got on the bike, started down their long driveway while picking up speed.
Well, I did not see the rain puddle at the end of their driveway and ran full speed into it. The bicycle proceeded to go one way, as I went the other way. I literally got bucked off the bicycle! Thank goodness my aunt is a nurse!
Needless to say, I now approach bicycles with caution. Hopefully, one day I will own one again.
