Tales from Tyson Library!

Hello 2019!

The Tyson Library has many fun things in store for the New Year. Story time with Ms. Donna and Ms. Lauren will be starting again January 31 and lasting through the end of April. This spring’s theme is Farm Animals! We are also having a stuffed animal sleepover and a Princess Party in February. Registration forms are also now available for the bookmark-coloring contest and entries must be turned in before March 11.

Ms. Linda has several new programs for adults including a monthly book club, knot club (crafting, knitting, etc.), a Pinterest craft each month, and more. Be sure to stop by the library to ask about or sign up for these programs! We are also open to any ideas you may have as well.

Our goal, in everything we do, based on the precept set forth by Mr. James Tyson, is to “Educate, Enlighten and Enrich”.  As we continue to evolve with the needs of our community, we welcome any input you have regarding programs, materials, or anything else we can do to serve our community and our community is YOU!
