Morrisville Public Library news

Michelle Rounds, Library Director

Feeling the winter blues? Break out of it by playing READO with us! Our Winter Reading challenge, READO, has begun and runs until March 1, 2018! READO is open to both kids and adults, and is just like regular Bingo, but with books! Come into the library and pick up a READO card! Read some of the books indicated on your READO card and make a “Bingo” of the books you have read. Turn in your READO card after you have made a “Bingo” and be entered into a drawing to win a prize at the end of the program! The kids can win a 3D Pen Set, and the adults can win a Kindle Fire!

Our annual Canned Food Drive to benefit the Morrisville Food Pantry has begun and will continue until the end of February! Please help us make it better than last year! Not only will you be making a generous contribution to our food pantry, but for every item you donate, we will take a $1 off your outstanding fines!

And be sure to utilize our new service, Curbside Delivery available NOW! Call the library by noon of each Friday with the items you would like us to gather for you! Books, DVDs, you name it! Call and ask us to deliver your hold items to your car too! Be sure to tell the staff member what time (15-minute increments) you plan to arrive (between 3-5pm) and we will bring the items to your car! (Limit of 15  items). No more getting out in the cold, unbuckling the kids or whatever to grab something quick to read or watch! (If popular, more delivery dates and times will be added.)
