Librarian Picks

Traveling Journals
Our library will now circulate traveling journals. Traveling journals are filled with the thoughts and creative energy of our community.  Choose one of our 24 journals (each with a different topic) to check out. See what other people have written or created and then add to the journal. You can write, draw, or collage on your journal entry.  Finally, return the journal to the library so someone else can check it out. We plan to add these journals to our circulating collection after they are full. Use this link to see the available journal topics.
