Are you feeling the winter blues? Is the cold, snowy, rainy weather keeping you inside? If so, there is nothing like a visit to your local library to warm you up and offer an antidote for winter.
Come to the library to borrow a great book, a DVD, a new magazine or meet a friend and play a game. You can also use the internet or learn how to use new technology. There is a lot happening in your library and you will always be greeted with an enthusiastic and smiling face.
We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped to run and organize the Winter Wonderland Festival in December. It was a tremendous success and we continue to be humbled by the support of the community. We are planning to make it an annual event.
The new library project continues to move along. Bids for construction will be reviewed by the end of the month and we continue to work on fundraising. We are planning to distribute a fundraising letter before winter’s end so that everyone in the community is well informed about how to help make our new library a functional, flexible, usable space where the community can come together to learn, discuss and debate. Please know that we are very grateful for those community members who have already donated.
If you have any questions regarding the new library project, please visit the library, we are happy to keep you informed. If you would like a representative from the library to attend a meeting for your organization, again, just ask. We are very excited about the project and love to talk about it!
Finally, be sure to visit the library, check the website or find us on Facebook to stay informed.

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
TumbleBooks are electronic versions of kids’ favorite picture books with added animation, sound, music and narration.
