One of the coolest things we do at The Library every year is connect people in our community – and beyond – through the making and receiving of Valentines.

For five years now, we have set aside a Saturday afternoon for Barktober, an event where pets and their humans can take part in pageants, parades and fun. This year it’s on Saturday, Oct. 6, starting at 2 p.m. at the Kyova Branch. We do this because we understand the importance of dogs and other pets in people’s … Continue reading
