Yes, there are times that Sandy is out of town for a conference, but she tries to include that on the calendar so you will have plenty of notice. During the winter months, Story Hour is cancelled if Pendleton County Schools are cancelled due to bad weather. If you are ever in doubt, please call the library.

We have four parties during the year: Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter. The library provides plates, cups, napkins, drinks and some snacks for these parties. Additional donations of snacks or treats for the kids are always welcome.
