Canasta- Mondays 1-3 pm

There’s a new(old) game at the library–Canasta! Canasta is a card game of the rummy family of games believed to be a variant of 500 Rum. Although many variations exist for two, three, five or six players, it is most commonly played by four in two partnerships with two standard decks of cards.

But you don’ t have to know that…all you need to know is that you can come to the library on Mondays from 1-3 to learn this game!

Dungeons and Dragons–Saturdays 1-2:30 pm

Attention teenagers! The Library is starting a Dungeons and Dragons club! This is a new club for the library, starting this May, so we have only gotten as far as setting up our characters–it’s not too late to join!

UPDATE: Mahjongg Club–Meet Tuesdays at 10 am

Our Mahjongg group is going strong thanks to our fearless leader, Ellen, and our fun-loving group of players. If you have never played this fascinating Chinese tile game steeped in ancient traditions, please sign up at the desk. We will continue to have our regular meetings at 10 on Tuesdays. New players welcome!

eBooks for Kids!

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.
