The library will kickoff the 2021 Winter Reading Program with a special Registration-Only ZOOM storytelling event on Thursday, December 10, from 1pm to 2:30 pm.

Library patron and storyteller Bill Stepien will present a program based on the book - How Our Post Office Created America by Winifred Gallagher, DBC02879. It will look at how the postal office has been serving and creating our way of life, since the our nation's founding. This program will explore early impacts on America, such as post roads and the pony express, and future concepts like “missile mail”.

Program is intended for those age 14 and older, but all are invited.

In-Person video on ZOOM is space-limited to 100 connections.

Registration starts November 16 and runs until we have all 100 slots filled.

*All are welcome to the Kickoff event, but you must be a patron at our library to be included in the Winter Reading Program. Become a patron today by completing the application! You may download an application from our website!
