Collecting New Toys for the Police Christmas Party

The Carthage Public Library is proud to be a drop-off location for the LaVerne Williams Police Christmas Party. We have a large box in the front lobby for your donations of new toys. Every December, the Carthage Police Department gives children from less fortunate families something for Christmas by hosting the LaVerne Williams Annual Children’s Christmas Party. More information on the party and contact information can be found at https://www.carthagepd.org/childrens-christmas-party/

Ms. Sherri is back! And so is Wednesday Story Time

Our Children’s director Ms. Sherri is back, and so is our Wednesday Story Time! Check our calendar for a list of upcoming dates. We hope to see you there! A few details:

  • Due to the current building maintenance project, we will be having Story Time in the Children’s area rather than the Community Room
  • We’ll be skipping the crafts portion of the event for a few sessions due to space constraints
  • Some things in the Children’s area (toys, puzzles, some computers) may be closed or inaccessible while Story Time is underway

Story Time Returns in September

Programming is starting again this month! Join us next Monday (September 10) at 10 am for bilingual storytime with Ms. Janine. However, we will NOT be having our regular English-language storytime with Ms. Sherri next week as we originally planned. Ms. Sherri will definitely be resuming storytime within a few weeks though, and we’ll have details soon, so stay tuned!
