Teens! Do not forget that this Thursday we will be showing “The Twelve Kingdoms” anime at the library! Join us at 5:30p.m. for the movie and refreshments. Kids can also come to collect their reading prizes through August 10th. A big thank you again to all of our sponsors who made this program possible!

Interested in making friends? Love the library? We now have two volunteer positions open! The lovely couple that was donating their time on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings is moving and we are terribly sad to see them go, but that means you can get a chance to join the library in helping out the community. We are looking for people who can work the front desk, greet people, and shelve library items on Tuesdays 5-8pm and Wednesdays 3-6pm. Stop by the library to fill out a volunteer application. We look forward to seeing you!
You can also make friends and expand your writing skills by joining our Blanco Writers Group this Thursday at 2pm at the library. You will get to meet others, share your works, and get tips. There is no cost, just come on in! If you cannot make it this Thursday, remember that it meets every second Thursday of the month.
