Programming for Teens and Tweens: Summer 2017

Due to our limited hours, we are unable to provide programming s we have in the past.  However, we encourage parents and caregivers to bring their children to the library to checkout books and use computers.

                                         *****************************************************************

Collections:

Print Collection: The library has a wide variety of fiction books appropriate for middle and high school youth. These include classic authors, popular titles and a variety of genres. The non-fiction titles support homework assignments and general interests. We also have the 2016-2017  TRUMAN and GATEWAY Award Nominated books available in the Young Adult section of the library. Missouri School Librarians have nominated these books for students to read and vote for their favorite in March 2017.

Media Collection: Titles of interest to youth in CD and DVD formats are housed in the general media collection.

 




 

Upcoming Events

THANKS for YOUR SUPPORT, VOTERS! 

We are thrilled to announce that the November 7th ballot measure has passed by near 70%! In 2018, the new Moniteau County Library will be operating on private donations and support from the Elia Wood Paegelow Foundation, since tax receipts will not be received until December 2018.

However, there are some expanded services that will be provided, such as Reciprocal Borrowing Agreements with surrounding area library systems, and a Summer Reading Program taken to rural schools in the county, if we are awarded a Summer Reading Program Grant from the Missouri State Library.  The courier service will be reinstated for interlibrary loan requests beginning December 1.

We look forward to implementing the expanded services that have been featured in the campaign in 2019 after the receipt of tax funds.

We want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those on the campaign committee who worked tirelessly on this ballot issue. If you voted Yes and Yes to establish a library district and secure public funding for library services, we thank you for your support. If you voted No, we invite you to visit the library to discover it's value to you and all Moniteau County residents.

HELP!  USED INK CARTRIDGES NEEDED

Here's a great way to help the library with supply costs. We are out of ink cartridges to recycle at Staples for store credit.  All brands and sizes may be turned in at the library so that each month we may recycle up to 20 cartridges for $40.00 credit.  The community has been helpful in the past so that we can use this fantastic program to help stretch the library budget.  We're counting on your help again.  Thanks!
