Outreach Programs

 

 

  • Paused 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The library strives to foster a love of reading, encourage life-long learning, embrace new technologies, and champion literature.

than true: not because they

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

Library Book Club

 

 

 

 

​The library book club meets at the Glasgow City-County Library every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. in the Horizon Room.  Updates and additional events can also be found on our Facebook page.  If you are interested in getting together to discuss good books, then please join us. 

  • 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.
