Children's Story Time Begins

Our very popular children's Story Time program will begin Tuesday, September 27 at 10:00 am. This program is designed for children under the age of 6, but all ages are welcome. Stories are read each week, followed by a craft and a snack before the kids get a chance to check out books they would like to read over the week. Pre-registration is not required. The program will continue throughout the school year, each Tuesday morning at 10:00 am.

Book Sale in Final Days

The library's annual book sale will be coming to an end very soon! We still have lots of quality fiction and non-fiction books for adults and children. There are also paperbacks, but they are going quickly! Take advantage of this great opportunity to stock up on reading material before the rain starts. The selection is great and the prices are fantastic!

Book Sale Begins

The library's annual book sale will begin Sunday, August 14 from 9-3 in the library parking lot. The sale will continue throughout September during open hours. We will have lots of quality children's books, adult fiction, non-fiction, VHS, DVD, books on tape, educational items, paperbacks and other items for sale. Since the sale will continue for a few weeks, we will be adding new items to the tables each week so keep checking back in! Remember, CFL is not a public library and so receives no public funding. All proceeds from the book sale go directly to benefit the library and, in turn, the community.

New Landscaping!

Many thanks go out to a community Eagle Scout, Porter Richins, who chose the library for his final project this spring. He coordinated the project, sought out donations and set up a day for a group of friends to complete the work. They brought in telephone poles to outline planting beds, filled the beds with dirt after clearing the area then planted quite an array of shrubs and flowers that will grow and fill in the beds beautifully. This project has been one that has greatly improved the library's landscaping and we have gotten many wonderful comments on how it looks. Thanks, Porter!!

New Board Meeting Day

Board of Directors meetings are now being held on the second Tuesday of each month starting at 6:30 pm. These meetings are held at the library and are open to the public. In fact, we have set aside some time at each meeting for any community member to speak to the Board before the meeting gets underway so if there's something you would like the library Board to know, come down to one of our meetings and let your voice be heard! If you are considering becoming a Board member, attending a meeting is a great way to meet the members.

Generous Donation a Big Surprise!

We are very, very excited about a donation that was recently made to the library. This donation was gifted to us in the will of a local resident who wishes to remain anonymous. Naming the library in her will was an extremely nice way of continuing her support of the community library she loved! This very generous donation will help us continue providing quality service to all community members and was such a wonderful surprise for all of us volunteers and Board members.

Check Us Out

We are making some changes in the library that will make it easier for you to find the books you are looking for. We are also adding lots of new titles to both the adult and children's collections each week so come on in and check out what we have to offer. We now have quite an extensive collection of homeschooling materials and curriculums for patron use. We also have great lists of recommended books for children of all ages...just ask to see them! We also have a new "book sale" section that will continually have new additions.
