Does it seem like December was over before it started? As children, Christmas takes forever to arrive. But, as adults, there are always things left on the to-do list. December was a busy month at the library, too. More than 870 people attended an event, and they checked out more than 40,000 items! Here are some of the books that were popular in December:

With a new year upon us, you’ll continue to see programs and classes you love and helpful library staff to answer your questions. But, we are also always adding new books, movies, video games and audiobooks to the collection and keeping a pulse on what you would like to explore and learn. We would love to hear about what you want from your library, whether that is a new event or a book you want us to order.

Closing thought:

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
