September Is Library Card Sign-Up Month

Public service announcement featuring Snoopy: What's cooler than being cool? Having a library card. Get yours today.
What’s happening in libraries today? They’re more about doing than borrowing — more about connecting than simply plugging in. Whether you want to get involved in your community, find a job, start a business, or simply get ahead, your library card is the key to opportunity. Libraries are transforming. Visit your library this September during Library Card Sign-Up Month and find out how, or visit I Love Libraries DOT ORG.

Movie Time

ID-100217622
We’re having a final goodbye to summer at both Wathena and Troy libraries in a few weeks. On Friday, August 21st at 1pm, we’ll be watching a new movie on the big screen at the Wathena Library. Bring the whole family for a movie and snacks on the last Friday of freedom before Riverside starts school for the year. Troy starts one week later, so on Friday, August 28th at 1pm. Children under 6 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times when visiting the library. Then, on Saturday, August 29th at 1pm, we’re having a movie marathon at the Troy Library with tons of snacks. Come hang out for the afternoon at the library! We’ll see you there. Stop by any branch to see what movies we’re showing.

Pool Party At Wathena

dTr6xGjT9On Friday, July 31st from 6:30-8:30pm, the library will host a pool party at the Wathena pool.  Admission to the pool will be free to all library users that evening, and we’ll have snacks and great prizes to give away, too. All ages are welcome. We’re having such a great summer of reading here at the library. Just a reminder that you have about two weeks to read and complete your summer reading bingo board. Don’t have a summer reading bingo board? Don’t know what a summer reading bingo board is? Stop by any branch and we’ll explain. Every bingo board that you turn in gives you one more entry into the grand prize drawing for your age group, so read, read, read! All reading bingo boards are due by July 31st to any branch.  They will not be eligible for the drawing if turned in after that date.
