LIBRARY OPEN HOUSE
The Central Citizens’ Library District is inviting the public to our Open House on Thursday, September 25th, from 6:30-8:00 PM. Tour the library and hear about the many new services offered. Computers will be available to try out our varied databases including Ancestry.com, Legal Forms, and Consumer Reports. See the things we have to offer in addition to books, such as our new cake pan collection. Learn about our programs and have some refreshments. Sign-up for a library card if you don’t have one-just bring two proofs of residency listing your physical address. All are welcome to come find out what the library has to offer!
