We want to keep our littlest patrons engaged with the library during this challenging time. Thanks to our friend, Adam Chasteen, we have created a YouTube channel for the library. On this channel, you can access all the story and craft videos from the Virtual Summer Reading program for 2020. And, we are posting new StoryTime Saturdays videos, every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, at 10 am.
Please check it out at www.youtube.com/channel/UCg1U0sy7m5118Ff0KgL485A/videos.
Maybe some of our adult patrons and parents will even be entertained! However you visit the library, in person or online, just Keep Reading!!

A Nutcracker Christmas party held on December 4th, 2019, was a huge success. We had 64 visitors to the library that night, with our pre-K to 6th grade ROWVA students making nutcracker-themed crafts in stations throughout the library. Mrs. Claus, our special visitor, read the Nutcracker story to our young visitors, while they enjoyed Christmas cookies and hot chocolate. At the end of the night, Santa even came to visit, hear Christmas wishes, and have his picture taken with our visitors! We invite everyone to come to A Nutcracker Christmas Open House at the library on Saturday, December 21st, from 10 am to Noon. The library will be closed for the holidays after that day. Come see our beautiful Nutcracker Christmas decorations throughout the library, meet and talk to Bev our new librarian, and see what we've been up to in 2019: the new Pilcrow books, the new Book Club, Puzzlers club, kids' activities and more. Maybe you will find something you would like to participate in for 2020. And, please, do check out all the new books from 2019. We guarantee there is something you will like!
