The word “Bibliophile” is: a lover of books; someone who finds joy and peace of mind while holding a quality book. Our newest contest at the library is “I Love My Library Because…” All you have to do is write on a heart why you love your library. We will put the heart on our bulletin board and at the end of the month we will draw one lucky person to win at Heart Shaped Folded Book. Stop by and tell us why you love your library.
