Reading is Healthy

Read – 1. To receive or take in the sense of (letters, symbols, etc.) especially by sight or touch.
                2. To utter aloud the printed or written words of.

     These are only two of the definitions for “read” that you will find in the Meriam-Webster dictionary. Most likely they are the two that immediately come to mind when you hear the word “read” spoken. But have you thought about what reading can do for you? Per the Health Fitness Revolution there are ten benefits you can receive by picking up a book and reading.
  • Stimulates the mind.
  • Acquire knowledge.
  • Expands your vocabulary.
  • Sharpens writing skills.
  • Hones critical and analytical skills.
  • Improves memory.
  • Boosts concentration.
  • A fun source of entertainment.
  • Feeds your imagination.
  • Relieves stress.
Yes, a library is more than just a place for supplying books for someone to read; but this summer we want to promote reading to supplement your summer activities. Summertime is a great time to get outside and get our bodies in physical shape. This library has a great reading program this summer for children and adults to encourage and motivate you to excursive your mind.

Book Bonanza -- Saturday, February 4th!

The library basement room is overflowing with books of all colors, sizes, and subject matter. And videos. And magazines. And even jigsaw puzzles. There's something for everyone!

This year the Friends of the Library is moving away from setting a price for the books to accepting donations for them. Formerly the books were sold for $2 per bag. Now you can decide for yourself how much you would like to donate to the Friends of the Library when "shopping" for books.

Although the basement books are always available, for this event they will be laid out for easy access on tables and shelves. Join us for this big event!
