JULY NEWS

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
We hope all of our patrons had a great holiday weekend! You may have noticed that our SECOND little library has been put up near the entrance of the schoolhouse by the Depot Museum! The other one is located in front of the library. Each one contains a section for children and adults books which are free to take and read. These 2 little libraries were made possible by a generous donation from the family of Mary Lane. Our summer in-house reading program has also been a success so far. All 3 classes are full and we look forward to the following weeks!

Pankhurst Memorial Library is currently looking into new adult programming. We have some simple crafts like Diamond Painting, soap making or candle making in mind but would love your input or suggestions. Please send us a message with anything you would like to see us offer!

As always, please feel free to contact us about anything you would like to see us offer in the future. Suggestions from our patrons are always welcomed and encouraged!
