“Instead of writing about a notable book of the month, I’d like to write about our wonderful li-brary. We truly have a gem of a library. I have been here almost ten years, and I’m fascinated how much it has grown. We now have a vast selection of DVDS. You can go in and grab a movie or catch up on a television series. Our book selection is phenomenal. Do you know that you can find some books on the shelves on the same day that they are available in the stores? As a mother of a young teenager, I’m in awe of how much the young adult section has grown. It has grown from one wall in the back of the juvenile section to a whole section unto itself. A teen can go in and find almost any-thing. There is Christian fiction, popular fantasy, mystery, and science fiction. There is also non-fiction that relates to many issues that our kids are facing today. The staff has worked tirelessly to get our kids reading again and to help our library grow in all areas. Some possible future options are different types of books clubs for adults and teens. If you haven’t stopped in lately, step into a great place where your imagination can run wild,” says Christina Mitchum.
