Exciting times at the NSJ Community Library….The much-awaited Book Drop has arrived and you can use it whenever the library is closed. You will also see the new kiosk from the County Library. This has been long anticipated and when finally full of books, it will enable one to check books out at any time.  However, you will need a county library card to use it.

Our shelves are full of amazing books and we keep adding new ones….the Local History section is growing, Young Adults’ shelves overfloweth with awesome reading, and in the Children’s section, Mary and Roo have been adding some of their most beloved children’s books. There is an ever growing Western section, for all you cowfolk. We have added a book sale shelf where we’ll sell, by donation, books we have duplicates of, etc. The DVDs are multiplying. There are computers available to the public and workstations also. For people who need internet, you’ll be happy to know our internet bandwidth has doubled. Thank you to the county for that.

This summer we are planning a children’s program, more on that soon! We are always welcoming new volunteers, while having much appreciation for all of our volunteers! There are assorted tasks and spending time at the Library is amusing, and deeply satisfying.

Our Open hours remain Tue and Thu, 11 am-7pm, and Sat 10am-4pm. Our phone number is 292-3008. The Tapestry Project goes on in the backroom Tue 1pm-3pm and Thu 10am-12pm. Come and stitch with us, no previous experience is necessary and the tapestries are stunning!
