  • Valley View Reading & Books:  We visit several times every month,  typically every week on Tuesdays from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm.  Please watch our calendar as we schedule around Valley View's requests.  Programs include reading and touring the facility with our book cart, distributing books or books on CD to residents.

  • Curbside Only  Nemont Reading & Book Swap:  Our visits are twice a month - typically the first and third Wednesdays from 3:00pm - 4:00pm.  Please watch our calendar as the schedule does move a bit.  Programs have included a book club as well as reading a book(s) chosen by the residents.

  • Prairie Ridge Village Book Swap: We visit PRV once or twice a month, and sometimes by additional request.  Typically our dates fall on the 2nd Wednesday of the month but often change to accommodate schedules at PRV.  Please see the HOME page or CALENDAR page for updates.  Due to COVID-19, we are only doing a drop off and pick up book swap.  Dates for the book swap are depending on their schedules.

  • Lustre School Book Swap: Once a month the Lustre 5th through 8th grade students visit the library to drop off books and check out new.  Visits are durring the school year from September to May.  

  • Do you enjoy watching movies, or maybe catching up on your favorite TV series?  We have over 3000 feature films, documentaries and television shows available for your enjoyment.  DVDs are checked out for a week and can be renewed for an additional week.  The fines are sort of steep, so you want to make sure to return them on time.

Children's Programs 
  • The Summer Reading Program (SRP) is held every year during the summer FREE to the public.  There are programs for children, teens and adults.  Every year is a different theme and typically runs about 6 to 8 weeks. The 2021 SRP Slogan is Tails and Tales and starts on June 14 through July 27.  We are planning on a safe program similar to last year.  We want to continue to offer activities and services while being safe.   This means limited group gatherings and programs in the form of virtual, come and go activities, and grab and go kits.  Online registration starts on June 1 but in person registration starts on June 14 at our kick off event.  To register online, please see the SUMMER READING tap at the top of the website.  More info will be posted here on our website once the SRP starts on June 14.   

  • Books and Babies in-person has be temporarily paused.  Normally it is held at 10:00am - 10:15am on Thursday.  This program targets 0-18 months and many families come for it and then stay for Storytime for the older siblings. We hope to start again in August 2021.

  • Story time in-person has been temporarily paused.  Story time immediately follows Books & Babies at 10:15am - 11:00am.  This children's program not only includes a story or two, but also music, arts and crafts, and other activities. We hope to start again in August 2021.

  • Lego Club is a six week program is for kids ages 6-12 held during the winter months.   We were unable to host a Lego Club last winter due to COVID-19.  However, we hope to bring it back winter 2022.  Please watch for updates in fall 2021.
