WEST POINT: ​The branch is planning again to give books to 6th graders.


Don't miss the 50th Anniversary events, happening May 23rd - 28th, culminating with their annual Memorial Day Book Sale. Authors for both children's and adult books are planned to attend.  The branch is also looking for someone to help with Summer Seminars.


The branch will have their writers' workshop the first weekend of June. Their FOTL meets quarterly (so will not have a monthly update). Children's projects are going well!

The branch is continuing its Rubber Ducky book program, with ducks dressed in different costumes.  Each time a book is checked out, the child collects a new duck; the challenge is to collect all the different ones.


​The 'Spring Storytime Celebration' is  April 26th! A new mural is going up in the children's area. Plans for the 'Secret Garden' on June 17th ​are coming along; they are looking for raffle items. The branch is also planning a book sale/yard sale event. Landscapers have been working to clean up the grounds, and a crew from the Sheriff's department came to help with the Sally Tuttle garden.

The branch celebrated volunteers with an appreciation event in April.


Murphys library held a very nice appreciation brunch for volunteers & staff early in April. Dressup Day is planned for April 22nd (Earth Day). The monthly author spotlight series is continuing on their website. 


The Melodrama raised $10,000! The branch will not have a kids' day in the park this year. They are looking forward to hosting a Christmas Open House, and being in the Christmas parade. They are also planning to hire a landscaper to clean up the front area.
