“Fairy tales are more

than true: not because they

tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

Outreach Programs

 

 

  • Curbside Only Valley View Reading & Books:  We visit several times every month - typically every week on Tuesdays from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm - but watch our calendar as we schedule around Valley View happenings and holidays.  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 - but 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.

  • Curbside Only 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.

  • 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 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 Summer Library Slogan is  Tails and Tales.  Please watch for updates for the 2021 Summer Reading Program.  We are planning on a safe program similar to last year.  All this and new adjustments due to COVID-19 and social distancing rules.  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.  

  • Books and Babies 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. Paused.

  • Read Around the World:  We believe that books can transport us to new places and adventures!  Starting August 2020, the library book club is traveling the globe through literature.  The goal is to learn about other cultures and be inspired.  Our hope is to read books that introduce us to new ideas, subjects and gain a broader view of the world.
