September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month!
National Library Card Sign-Up Month – September is a great time to belong to the library. New and Renewed library patrons can enter a drawing for $25 in Gibson Bucks. Additionally, those who need to replace a library card can do so for free. Finally, all fines incurred for returned items will be wiped away when you come in to see us.
Ways to Use Your Library Card - Checking out great books, audiobooks, and ebooks isn’t the only reason to visit your public library. You can take a class on electronics, sign language, different crafts, and other practical “how to’s.” Enjoy browsing through the magazines or sitting in a comfy chair to read one of the newspapers. Moyer District Library also provides an area and the resources to dive into local history. There are times when you may need to use our computers, printing, fax, and laminating services. Our program room holds library events but it also provides a nice space for your events at a very reasonable price. You can attend events like book clubs, special presentations, story hours, and classes. However you can also rent the space to hold a birthday party or shower of your own. These are just some of the things that you can do at your public library, Moyer District Library. We hope to see you soon!

At the Library:
Sesquicentennial Style – In honor of Gibson City’s sesquicentennial this year, some folks from our director Sharon’s hometown of Loda donated a stylish display of vintage clothing. Nancy Johnson and Shirley Meece gathered some great antique pieces, including a wedding gown from Hilda Campbell. This display is just a sample of what will be experienced at the Style & Quilt Show on Sunday, October 24th at the Kruse Center in Gibson City.
Electronics Classes –People are appreciating the individual assistance that they receive on their personal devices through our small group electronics classes. Tablets, phones, and laptops can cause frustration and anxiety but we are here to help! Contact the library to reserve your spot for our next class.
