Story Time on Wednesdays - camping themed stories all summer long with special Science Stories where we build contraptions!
Crafts on Thursdays - Make a bag and badges, wind chime, embossed foil, pencil bag out of a chips bag, bracelets, Tic Tac Toe, board games and sand art!
So much on Fridays - from Lap Sit for little ones to Lego club to teen events!
Can't make it to the library during the week? No worries! We have lots of Saturday events too!
Keep these things in mind -
Most of our events are open to anyone, large groups (like daycares) are welcome. The only thing that requires pre-registration are the craft sessions. The events on Fridays and Saturdays are geared for families and not ideal for large groups.
We try to be outside as much as possible. If the weather is forecasted to be below 90 degrees at 10am, please come prepared to be outside by bringing chairs, blankets and drinks. We have blankets and sun screen, if needed.
All programs are free of charge and open to everyone. No library card is required! Join us for a fun summer of books, books and s'more books!

What a great start to the summer! The library, music, stories, crafts and fun!
We start on Tuesday, June 6th at 10am with Jacksonville native Heather Harlan, a storyteller and artist.
On Wednesday there is Garden Club at 9:30am followed by Story Time at 10am and 3pm. We will be reading books about Camping!
Our very first craft is on Thursday. We will be making a bag out of t-shirts and making your own badge to put on the bag. Craft times are 9:30am, 11am, and 2pm.
On Friday, we have Lap Sit for kids from birth to 5 years old at 10:15am. This is a play group for families so they have a chance to socialize and get out of the house!
On Saturday we will have our first teen event, making a wallet out of a paperback book. Teens can stop in anytime to make an awesome wallet!
Summer Reading registration starts Tuesday, June 6th! If you can't make it that day, don't worry, there is room for everyone! You can register at any time. We ask that a parent or guardian register their child because the registration includes a photo release. We never put children's faces on the website, but it could happen in a group photo.
Keep an eye out for the next Friends of the Library Book Sale. We will have something special available - more felt goodies! There are ice cream sets for sale along with the grill and garden items that can be seen in our new play area. All proceeds go to the Friends of the Library, which helps to fund the Summer Reading Program!
