We will be closed on Saturday (September 3) and Monday (September 5) for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.
The books are here for those who want to participate in this fall’s TALK sessions. It promises to be a very interesting program. The theme for this year’s TALK is Great Plains Spirit. The books are: Touching the Fire by Roger Welsch (September 10), Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder (September 24), The Bones of Plenty by Lois Phillips Hudson (October 8 ) and Great Plains by Ian Frazier (October 22).

It’s time to sign up for Story Time at Meade Public Library. We have an exciting year planned for the little ones. Story Time will be held at 10:00 a.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month (September thru April). Each session will last about 45 minutes.
This year, we will be having volunteers come in to guide the story time sessions. The volunteer will choose the theme for the day, the books and the activities. It will be exciting to see what they have planned!
Our first Story Time will be on Wednesday, September 7, at 10:00 a.m. Rhonda Donahue will be leading, and her chosen theme is “Footprints of Today, Leading to the Future.” Children should wear “paint clothes” or old clothing for a fun painting project.
