Tales from Tyson Library!


Brrr! It sure has been a cold start to 2018! Come warm up at the Tyson Library as we have quite a few exciting things happening to ring in the New Year! First, Margaret Marcy, the new library Director, will be starting a Genealogy Class which will take place on January 23rd. In this class, you will learn the basics of Call or stop by the library to register as space is limited.

Our Patron Appreciation Day will take place on Thursday January 25. Stop by the library for refreshments, the chance to have your fines forgiven (Tyson Library Fines only) and to enter a drawing for the chance to win a Kindle Fire!

For the children, we will have a Preschool Valentine’s Day party on Thursday February 15.  Our weekly story time with Donna will resume on February 22 and the theme will be “Moving with Mo!” Call or stop by the library to register your child for these programs.  Donna always has great ideas for the children and youth and we cannot wait to see what she has planned for 2018.

For adult programs, we have a crochet class that takes place on Monday January 8 and Monday January 29. Clint and Chrisanna Giltner will be teaching a basic photography class on January 13. We also have an essential oils class taking place on Monday January 22 with Amy Miller. Please call or stop by the library to register for these programs.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to be the new Director for the Tyson Library and to serve the Versailles Community. Everyone has been so welcoming and I cannot wait to see what is in store!
