Join us on Thursday, July 18th at 6:00 p.m. as we collaborate with the NoCo Arts and Cultural District to kick off Brian Somerville’s “Nitty Gritty” Art installation with a presentation by the artist himself on his creative process – from the conception of an idea to the finished piece of art – which culminates in his simply amazing pieces of sculpture! The presentation will be in the North Program Room of our Jeffersonville location, and his artwork is on display in the 2nd Floor Art Gallery from July 17 – August 21.
Ready to take the next giant leap for mankind? We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing with the 2019 Summer Reading Club, which runs Monday, May 20th through Saturday, August 3rd! There are loads of great prizes for kids and adults who complete the program.

As the American Library Association bestows its 2018 “I Love My Librarian” awards, librarian Kristen Arnett expresses her humble opinion on why visiting a library is the best way to show your appreciation:
Everyone says they want to support their local library, like they support using reusable water bottles, no cell phones at the dinner table, and the quiet car on trains.
But do they really? Folks tend to think of libraries in the abstract. It’s less a physical space and more of a concept, a powerful good in the universe that everyone believes in unconditionally, like Santa Claus or Beyonce.
So how do you support your library? Leave a nice comment on their blog? An appreciative Facebook post? A well-timed tweet about them that gets a zillion retweets?
How cool is it that Zoë Kravitz is a fan of libraries?!! She’s starring in video PSAs to shine a light on libraries and all they do to open up new enchanting worlds like those in Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald. You can learn more at http://www.ilovelibraries.org/zoe-kravitz
