What a Summer!

Thank you to everyone who registered, participated, and completed the 2021 Summer Reading Program! What a whirlwind of a summer! We all learned how to log minutes or books read online or via the app, completed cool activities, and succeeded in reading the summer away!

Keep an eye out, we will be hosting another online Reading Challenge this fall, so don’t delete that Beanstack Tracker App just yet!

NEW Mystery Section

We are excited to announce the recent addition of our new Mystery Section. Located in the last row of Adult Fiction, our Mystery Section brings together everyone’s favorite sorta light, kinda cozy, great reading mysteries all in one place.

Please make note that you won’t find the hard-core, bad to the bone mysteries like James Patterson and William Kent Krueger there, they will still be found in Adult Fiction, alphabetical by author.

We are always happy to help you find whatever you need! Feel free to stop by and let us show you around!

WINTER WEATHER POLICY

According to library policy, when the local school district is closed due to weather or road conditions, the library will also be closed. For scheduled school holidays or weekends, library administration will make the best decision for closing due to weather or road conditions.

This policy allows you to know if we are open or not during times of inclement weather without calling or making a wasted trip to the library. We value the safety of our patrons and staff, many of whom live on rural roads.

Please stay safe in times of inclement weather. We appreciate our patrons!

Driver Training

 

The Webster County Library has partnered with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons, starting on 27 March 2018. The practice tests are based on the state’s actual DMV materials.

The creators of Driving-Tests.org have emphasized availability and accessibility to help new drivers study state manuals and take driving practice tests. Partnership with Driving-Tests.org allows the us to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers.
