I’m also thrilled to be launching our new calendar format. We hope you’ll enjoy having both the youth and adult events in one place. We also think that publishing our calendar 4 months in advance will assist you in planning ahead for those programs you really want to attend. However, this is just one way you can find out about our events. The staff and I agree that the best way to find out what’s happening at the Library is to download our new and improved app. Not only is finding an event easier than ever, but you can also register for programs in a snap! Thank you for using our Library. We look forward to seeing you at one (or more) of our many programs. 2
