There are so many lovely libraries around the US! It’s hard to narrow it down! Did you visit a library that wasn’t on our list but should have been? Let us know and post some photos too! We would love to see where you have been! Every library is different! They all have their own stories to tell and not just in books! Each building tells a story! Every library has books, but not all books are the same.

We’ve given you the list of beautiful libraries around the US, now it’s up to you to find out why we chose those libraries! Go visit, refer a friend, or do some research! The mystery is up to you to solve! Enjoy!

 

I love when I visit a library, I find a comfy spot to nestle in for a bit and read a good book! Then when I’m ready, I check out and borrow the book. It’s nice to find a nice spot to relax, enjoy the peace and a good book! Sure, we live at the beach and can do the same thing, but there is nothing like being surrounded by history and books. We also have a garden off to side that you can enjoy and read a good book! Come visit The Webb Library, wonder around and listen! No really…listen! It’s quiet and a good book is calling your name or was that the ghost?!

The E-Book!

I love to read and I love books! I’m sure you do too! Did you know you can borrow E-Books at the Library?
Yes, You Can!

e-books

Do you own a Kindle, Nook or Tablet? If you do, we can help you get set up to start reading on your device! How wonderful is that!

Most people don’t know that you can borrow e-books from the library. Tell your friends and family! Get out the megaphone and shout, call someone, post it on social media and get the word out there! We have E-Books!!! Yes, we do! How exciting is that? I am always looking for a good book to read. Now I can search through all the books to find that perfect on to borrow!

Borrowing an E-Book from the Library is just like walking into the library, searching for a book, and taking it home for a little bit, except you can do it all from your device, at home, and in comfy P.J.’s! Oh yes! You don’t have to leave the house to borrow a book, but you are always more than welcome to come to the library and enjoy holding a book in your hands and enjoying how peaceful it is at anytime! We love our library, come visit us anytime!

The winter is coming soon and sometimes we just want to cozy up on the couch with a blanket, a cup of coffee and a really good book! Now is a great time to borrow both a Book and E-Book!

So now that you know that we offer E-Books to borrow, are you ready to learn about it and start enjoying these books? Come into the library and ask one of our wonderful ladies at the desk for help and they will get you started! Bring your library card when you come so they can help you better!

Are you ready to start your next adventure?

We have children E-Books too!

*And don’t forget, a Book will never have a dying battery! Come in and borrow some books too!

International Sensation : Behind Closed Doors

AN INTERNATIONAL SENSATION

Looking for something exciting to read?

This is a hair raising debut, both unsettling and addictive.

A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.Appearances can be deceiving… Terror is contagious…

and impending peril creates a ticking clock

that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale

toward it’s grisly,  gratifying conclusion

( Publishers Weekly )

This is one book you will want to grab at the Library.  It will leave you breathless.

Knit-Wits

crochet-ripple-blankets
Have you ever wanted to learn how to crochet or knit, but didn’t know anyone who could teach you or maybe you’ve been out of practice and want to start again!

Have you heard about the Knit-Wits? Remember, the holidays are around the corner and handmade gifts are much more special when they are made with love!

Come join Laura and the rest of the Knit-Wits on Weds. 11:30 – 12:30! You’ll enjoy learning new skills, sharing new/old skills and new/old stories, and meet new friends!

I love meeting new friends! I’m sure you will too!I remember when my girls were younger making Barbie outfits, blankets, scarfs, and ponchos for them. Eventually, they wanted to learn too! It warmed my heart that my girls wanted to learn. My oldest daughter still makes crochet blankets and scarfs!

I’m so thankful that my granddaughter loves to quilt by hand. Too many young people are no longer interested and the “old ways”, when a young person is interested in a skill, it keep the traditions alive and going for another generation. I’m sure my granddaughter will pass along her quilting skills to her daughter one day! I know when she goes to Arkansas over the summer, she loves going to the quilting with all the older ladies. They are all over 60, but just love when she comes and sit with them around the quilting rack and quilts with them. Again, something young people just aren’t interested in.

Maybe you can join our awesome meeting, learn how to crochet and share this art form with your daughter, niece, or granddaughter! Keep the tradition alive for many more generations to come!

( Why not just bring them along )
