September Library Happenings

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! 


If it’s been a while since you’ve visited the library, come back and see what’s new.




There is a Bus Trip to the Bell Museum/Marjorie McNeely Conservatory on Thursday September 21, 2023. The bus will leave Dawson at 6:30 AM. Sign up soon before the bus fills up. A menu for the cafe is also posted at the main desk. 



There are some new displays to see peppering the library throughout. One is devoted to Star Trek and space, honoring the anniversary of Star Trek’s debut on September 8, 1966.




Another celebrates some purrfect reading with a display devoted to cats.




With the return to school, there’s a display for the classics.



Looking for some audio books for a long drive, there’s some of the biggest names in books from Stephen King to James Patterson set out. And for teens, there’s a variety of YA titles on display to encourage some extracurricular reading. Look forward to new displays each month.
