November/December 2018

The winter season is almost upon us.  Birds are flying from our summer skies to the South to stay warm.  For us, it’s going to get cold outside and the light will be scarce.  Not to worry, the library will be here to provide warmth, a great book & movie to borrow, and entertainment throughout the winter so there’s no need to hibernate.

December, of course, means the holidays and the beginning of winter. As we’ve done in years past, we’ll run our Food for Fines program November 1st through December 15th. Every non-perishable item donated will count for $1 in fine credit for GLPLD cardholders only and can’t be used at other libraries or for lost and/or damaged items.  As we are donating the collected food to a local pantry, please do not bring in dirty, expired, damaged food, or food without labels.  Please be generous in this season of giving.

Our 9th Annual Holiday Spectacular is on Wednesday, December 5 from 6:30 to 8 PM to kick-off the holiday season.  There will be Christmas carols by local students, refreshments, and a visit from Ol’ Saint Nick.  Come and join us during this festive time!

Our Edu-tainment initiative is off to a great start thanks to the introduction to the Playaway Launchpads for children.  Thank you to all those that are checking them out and enjoying the educational entertainment.  More titles for Children are arriving on the shelves as well as Comics, Graphic Novels, & Math titles for Teens & Adults.

In the coming months, we’ll be adding a new collection that’ll be Busy Bags as part of our Edu-tainment initiative.  These bags are designed to be fun and educational for families to share literacy, learning experiences, and crafts at home.

Also, a note about our ongoing window replacement project due to leaking windows.  Our warranty is gone and the original installers are no longer in business so it’s up to the library to replace the windows.  We had expected everything to be finished in the beginning of November but unforeseen circumstances have pushed back the end date.  When an estimated completion date is determined, we’ll be sure to let everyone know.  Thank you your continued patience!

As always, thank you for your support of the library!

Regards,

Brian Vagt
Library Director
