FEBRUARY IS LOVE YOUR LIBRARY MONTH!
What do you love most about the library? Is it the mystery section? How you can get almost any book imaginable with MeLCat? Is it the Library of Things? Storytime? Craft classes? The Local History Room? Let us know! Help us show everyone all there is to love about your library by taking a photo in our “I love my library” frame and sharing it on social media along with why YOU love the library! Bonus points if you wear a library shirt, like our model Thelma here!
“A library book, I imagine, is a happy book.”

Curious about us? We now have an Our Staff page on our website!
Library staff are monitoring the current state of the COVID-19 Pandemic in our area in case it becomes necessary to adjust our program schedule or library operations in response. Help us stay open to serve you by refraining from visiting the library if you feel sick and wearing a mask if you attend our programs. Masks are also encouraged for all patrons during their visit. If you can’t come into the library due to illness, we are more than happy to offer curbside service! Call us at 269.695.3681 to make arrangements. Thank you for your support, and for helping us make the library a safe place for our staff and patrons!
