Upcoming Events

We have some upcoming events that you may want to put on your calendar or add to your phone.

Village Orders for Martin T-shirts are due on February 5th.  You can order your t-shirts here, the Martin Village, or the school.


We will be keeping our puzzle up in the front Community Room.  It’s so fun when a group of friends come in and work on the puzzle together!


In February we will be bringing back Blind Date With a Book.

blind date with a book 2013

The Blind Date with a book was last done in 2014 (we think, our years run together sometimes.  Does that happen with anyone else?).  But it’s basically this…instead of judging a book by it’s cover, you are going to judge it by it’s description.  And it’s a pretty short description at that!

You check a book out based on just this.

We encourage you to tag us in photos on facebook so we all can join in the fun of your blind date!  Who knows, maybe checking out a book you don’t normally choose will end up being your favorite new author or new series to read!

On Saturday, February 13th we will be doing something VERY SPECIAL here at the library.  Stay tuned for more information on that come Monday.  But make sure you keep some time between 9am and 1pm free for this special something.

On Saturday, February 15th, we will be having Book Club in the Front Community Room.  We will be discussing Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner. If you click the title’s name, it will take you to where you can order it on MeL. 22544024.jpgIf you want to keep up with the happenings of Book Club or know what books are coming up to read along with us even if you cannot make it to our Monday Book Club, here is our READING LIST.  We also have an entire page dedicated to Book Club here on the blog site. And when in doubt what to talk about it Book Club, just know we always fall back to our favorite current subject – Downton Abbey.

The Teen Council will be meeting on February 22nd to discuss the book Can You Survive The Wilderness.  It is a choose your own ending book and we are looking forward to the fun conversations this book sparks.
