National Library Lovers Month :

Library with multiple levels of books from National Day Calendar- The entire month of February is dedicated to the people who love whole buildings devoted to the reading, housing, organizing, categorizing, finding, studying and otherwise loving books, ebooks, music, movies, non-fiction, fiction.

Libraries provide so much more than a place for us to enjoy great novels or to discover amazing adventures and history. They help with our research papers and provide a quiet space to study, and so much more.

For preschoolers, libraries entertain them, check out our Calendar for upcoming events. Our new library building will have more areas for meeting rooms, study rooms and program rooms for adults and children.

Libraries lend not only books but music and movies. Our new library building will also have space for art displays, easier access to our genealogy and local history, new furniture and equipment.

 

Find a good book (or audiobook or dvd or cd!) in our online catalog. Check our online calendar for a program of interest to you at YOUR Library.

Presidents Day, February 20, 2017 :

Presidential Seal- Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—Washington’s actual day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present. -- from history.com
