LIBRARY NEWS

On Friday, August 25 we had a Paint A Rock day for everyone to paint an inspirational rock for our staff to hide around town. People are then encouraged to post a photo of themselves with the rock & #GreeleyCountyLibraryRocks then bring the rocks in to the library to be hidden again.

The 3rd Annual Pumpkin Patch is in the lot to the south of the Library. Each of the classes in the local Elementary School from Preschool through 5th grade will visit during the month of October for a story, a craft, a pie pumpkin, a free book, and a snack. There will also be pumpkins for the Learn & Play participants. Feel free to wander through our Pumpkin Patch and take your own family pictures when we aren’t using it for a group. Thanks to our sponsors who you see listed on the right side of our site!

See you at the Library!

Front Room Facelift

 

We have updated our front room. First we added bistro tables and upholstered stools. Then we added a slat wall feature where we can display various items and change the display periodically. We installed a TV which we tune to a news or weather channel. Most recently we changed our magazine display to the front room. Stop in to check out (pun intended!) what’s new!

Library Craft Day

We had a Craft Day on Friday, August 25 for all ages. This was a Paint A Rock activity for everyone to paint inspirational rocks to be hidden around town by our staff. When people find the rocks they are encouraged to photograph them, post them with #GreeleyCountyLibraryRocks, then bring them in so we can hide them again. Happy rock hunting, and help us participate in a fun activity that is sweeping the country!
