Library offers Cozy Corner Book Shop


We at the library are very excited about our newest project. We are using about half of our meeting room area for an open-during-library-hours bookstore called the Cozy Corner Book Shop.

The library donated numerous used books. Usually we have our HUGE book sale around the Fourth of July. We will now have a bookstore that you may browse in anytime we’re open.

We already have quite a large supply of books and miscellaneous items, most of them in like-new condition. We’re now having our Very Merry Book Sale, which will continue until the end of the year with lots of hardcovers, softcovers and paperbacks. Come on in and see if you can find some last-minute gifts or just some wonderful winter reading materials.

This is a great addition to our library.

AARP tax-aide

to be available at library

Starting Thursday, Feb. 7, the library will again host AARP tax help. Tax experts will be available from noon to 4 p.m. Thursdays in February and, if needed, in March.

Appointments for the 45-minute sessions are necessary and may be made by signing up at the library or by calling 568-6181.

This is a free service aimed at seniors, young families and those with low to middle incomes. Thanks, AARP volunteers.


Our volunteers give the library gifts beyond compare — their time, their expertise, their good humor, themselves. Thank you all so very, very much.
