Join us on Friday June 13 for our last Scandals of Madison County talk at 6:30pm. Madison County Historian, Matt Urtz, will share the final scandals of the 1900’s and the most recent ones in Madison County (that he can get away with telling us about)!
Have you heard things around Madison County like, “Imagination Library”, “books for kids coming to their homes”, “Dolly Parton” and more? Here’s the scoop- In 1996, Dolly Parton launched this wonderful program to foster a love of reading among preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Any child in the Morrisville Eaton Central School District from ages 0-5 can sign up for this great program! If you haven’t signed your child up, ask us about it today! We are also accepting donations to keep this program going for years to come! If interested, please contact me!
We will be closed to observe Memorial Day on Monday May 26. We will reopen on Tuesday May 27 at 10am.
Our summer hours begin Saturday May 24. We will be closed every Saturday from now until August 31. We will resume Saturday hours on September 6, 2014. We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12pm to 8pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 8pm.
