It’s a brand new year! Join us as Story Time returns on Monday, January 25. Again, we will meet at the library park (west of library) at 10:30 AM and enjoy stories in the great (cold) outdoors. If raining, Story Time will be held at the picnic shelter at the ball diamonds on South Locust.
Story Time is geared towards children ages 3-5 years of age. Bring your coats, chairs, and blankets and join us for a brand new year!
*If schools are closed due to bad weather, there will be no Story Time that day.

For the month of January we will continue in this phase.
The Kansas State Library offers digital book e-lending. There are hundreds of available titles for both children and adults. And all you need is a Kansas Library Card!
BookFlix: Animated picture story books matched with a non-fiction book. Each book pair may also have 2-3 games/puzzles.
3M Cloud Library: Contains larger publishers, so you’ll see bestsellers here. Mostly fiction, with some popular non-fiction. This works like your normal library, where if all copies of a book are checked out, you place a hold.
Enki: Includes self-published books in its catalog of small-medium publishers. It also has a great variety of both fiction and non-fiction. Cooking, crafts, and DIY have good selection. Since the catalog is large (about 40,000 books) and it is fairly new, holds are still uncommon.
Freading: All books are always available. Lots of variety in both fiction and non-fiction, there are even graphic novels. Smaller publishers, but the catalog has over 50,000 books in it and more are added at least once a week.
Britannica E-STAX: Non-fiction for kids, unlimited access.
