Library Book Club
April 2023 marked the Library Book Club's 7th year! The book club meets every last Monday of the month from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. It is free and open to adults. If you are interested in getting together to discuss books, then please join us. Updates and additional events can also be found on our Facebook page. Our goal is to read books that introduce us to new ideas, subjects, and gain a broader view of the world.
Valley View Reading & Books: We visit several times every month, typically every week on Tuesday from 10:00 am - 11:00 am. 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.
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 and check out new books. Visits are during the school year from September to May.
Do you enjoy watching movies, or maybe catching up on your favorite TV series? We have over 4000 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.
