Bicknell Branch Patrons Take Note:
In an attempt to make some of your favorite genres (kinds) of books more easily accessible and also to allow additional room for new books, we are creating separate areas for Christian Fiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy in the Adult section of the library. We already have General Fiction paperbacks, General Fiction, Western paperbacks, Western Fiction, Mystery, Autobiographies, Biographies, Audiotapes, VHS, DVD’s, Reference, Large Print Mystery and Large Print Fiction in separate designated areas. There will also always be displays of our newest purchased, as well as our newest donated gently used books. When we have this project completed, we will begin on better organizing our young adult area.
As our library book and DVD collection has grown we have purchased new red oak bookcases to compliment those already in place.
Any time!! Any day!! – Miss Debbie, unless she has an away meeting or Outreach program will be available to read to, or share a finger puppet, music program, or craft with your child, upon your request.
Miss Debbie also has some seasonal coloring sheets for the children to color and put on her office door each month.
