Greetings from the Library in Helena!

We hope this letter finds you well. The library is open and ready to serve you with loads of new books and movies, and neat plans for the spring and summer.

May is a big month for the library, as school is winding down and the summer is approaching. As many of you know, the library has a FUN summer reading program each year.

This year, the Summer Reading theme is “Oceans of Possibilities”. Big plans are being made to provide a fun and exciting program with prizes, giveaways, programs, and entertaining performers! The program is simple, user friendly, and FREE!

Having a library card when you visit this summer can save you time and money, so be sure to stop by soon to get a new card or update your current one.

Great things at the Library in May:

The Library Book sale is May 19, 20, and 21. Look for great deals and support your library. On Saturday, May 21st, fill a bag of books for $5.00!

The Library would like to thank Helena High School National English Honor Society for their annual library book drive. Special thanks to Helena faculty members Mrs. Rigdon and Mrs. Compton. This group has ALWAYS worked hard to support the library, and we appreciate their efforts very much.

Look for new books and movies at the library! We add new items all the time.
