As our Summer Reading program comes to an end, we’d like to thank all of our library patrons for their participation and invite everyone to our last Summer Reading Event of the year hosted by the Museum of Science! We will be learning about “Super Cold Science” on the Ashby Common on Tuesday, August 26th at 2pm. All are invited and no registration is required. We hope to see you all there!
The annual Pumpkin Festival is coming very soon! Check out the Friends page for more details on what you can expect and how you may become involved!
If you are looking for fun things to do this summer – the Friends of the Ashby Free Public Library sponsor a number of passes for local attractions. The passes are listed on the Friends page of this site.
The Friends of the Library is always looking for more active members. The Friends is a non-profit group of volunteers who support and fund the needs of the library’s educations programming. Sitting with Santa, the Pumpkin Festival and Summer Reading all occur because of the Friends. If interested in volunteering or learning more, check out the Friends page.
Do you love music?
So does the library! We now have music CDs available for borrowing. What a great way to try different music. We are also accepting donations of any type of music CDs. If you have already downloaded the songs and don’t want to store the actual CD give it to the library!
You may have noticed the scroll bar on the right of this page. We can see everything that is new at the library. As soon as it displays here it means it has been added to the Library. Don’t forget you can always put holds on any items, so be sure to save that new novel for yourself! Plus, if you would rather receive an email to alert you of new books click on the link below the scroll bar and sign up for the weekly newsletter.
The Library is currently looking for current or classic DVDs or CDs. If the library does not circulate the item it will be donated to the Friends of the Library for fundraising.
Pre-school Story & Craft
The Library presents a weekly Pre-school Story and Craft time on Wednesdays at 2:00. This program is geared for 3, 4, and 5 year olds with their caregiver, although younger siblings are welcome to come along. We will sing songs, read a story or two, and do a related simple craft. This is a drop-in program; we look forward to seeing you.
We Have Kindles
If you are looking to try a Kindle, reserve one at the library!
