Abe Lincoln

Feb 19 2016 6:00 pm

Meet a great historical figure on Friday, February 19th at 6pm at the library. Come hear a first-hand account of the turbulent years from 1854-1865 which nearly destroyed our young nation but instead eventually resulted in a “new birth of freedom” from that period’s greatest protagonist, Abraham Lincoln. Kevin Wood is a professional Lincoln presenter with a striking resemblance to Honest Abe and a wealth of knowledge about his life. This program is designed for adults. Please register at the library.


Did you know we have iPads for kids to use in the library? They are loaded with fun and educational apps for ages 1-12. Just ask for one at the desk.

Movie Snow Days

No school? No problem. The library will show movies every time school is cancelled due to weather this winter.
