We are still looking for donations for these items, so feel free to bring anything you have by the library.
Our Create-A-Costume group will meet throughout September and the first two weeks of October. The meetings will be after Story Time on Thursdays for those who are too young for school or are homeschooled, and on Fridays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for those who need to come after school! Adults must be present to approve their child’s choices and to assist in the making of the costumes.
This is a family friendly group. We look forward to seeing you all there!

December 1, 2017 - The Fannie Brown Booth Library and the members of the Friends of the Library officers would like to thank the community for its generous support of the Library Book Sale held this fall. The success of the Book Sale was due to the work of all involved. This includes the community members who purchased books and who worked at the sale, city employees who assisted with the breakdown, and those who gave special monetary donations, book donations and boxes.
The Library would like to give special recognition and appreciation for the many hours of planning and preparation by all the members of the Friends of the Library group. You are all truly an asset to the Library.
We thank you all. See you at our Spring Sale.
