Snowmen/women Welcome!!

Throughout the winter, we encourage community members to come build a snowperson, fort, or sculpture on the library lawn-front or back. Please leave a note or send an email with your name and contact information after you’re finished your masterpiece and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a gift basket full of goodies including a book, movie tickets, and treats.

Come decorate our lawn with snow art as often as you like and enter each time. We’ll conduct the drawing in mid-March–hopefully to celebrate the coming of warm weather once again!

If the library is closed due to the weather, you will find the announcement here and on our Facebook page. You can also call the library and there will be a message.
