Happy New Year

We hope you had a wonderful Holiday season. This year we have a brand new program or website for you to use. Check out our new site https://wilseyelmcreek.libib.com/ you can see our collection of books and DVD’s from home. Currently we are still adding all of our books to the collection. Our goal is to have them all in by March.

With this site/cataloging system our patrons will even have the ability to put hold requests on books or DVD’s. I am so excited for this new system, and hope our patrons are as excited as I am.

Library News

Hello all, I know it has been a little while since I have posted on the Website, been busy trying to get a few projects done before the end of the year.

The new organization is now almost complete on our Non-Fiction Section. All new labels are on, and the non-fiction section is looking really nice.

Our Facebook Lego challenges are going well. This is something new we just started in September. Check out our Facebook page to see all the cute creation the kids (and some adults) are making.

We had the Halloweenie Roast again this year, and thanks to the cold weather, we moved it into the library. Enjoyed seeing the kids in the costumes, and their parents too.

Large Donation

We are excited, yesterday we received a large donation of DVD’S from a family. After doing a quick sort to get out any doubles, we are excited that these are the ones we will be preparing to get out to you our Patrons. We did not do a count, but there are lots of Disney movies!!! Keep watch for these to hit the shelf’s for check out here in the next few weeks.

We had a request from most of our patrons to do the game we had done a few summers ago. So it is back, but this year you will need to find the Alien Space Ship with in Wilsey. If you find our ship, come in the library, and tell us where you saw it and get a sweet treat. The space ship will move every Saturday night. The space ship will be able to be seen from the road.
