What's new at the library

Closed for Memorial Day

Dominy Library will be closed Monday, May 30 for Memorial Day. We will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, May 31.

Goodbye, Overdue Fines!

We are excited to announce that effective immediately, we will no longer be charging the daily $0.10/item overdue fine. Accounts with items 14 days overdue will be unable to checkout. All previous overdue fines have been forgiven. Fees for lost or damaged items are still in place.

Now Offering Laminating Services

Laminating services are now offered here at the library! The cost is $0.50/page.

Wonderbooks Are Here!

We have started a small collection of these read-along style books and will continue to add to it as our resources allow. These books include a built in device that reads aloud the book (with sound effects!) and includes a learning mode to further enhance reading skills. Come try one out!

Dominy T-shirts For Sale

Show off your pride and support for our library through the purchase of a Dominy t-shirt! Limited sizes are available, and each shirt will cost $20. Stop into the library to claim yours!

Book Donations

Two bags or boxes of book donations will be accepted between now and the next book sale (end of July). Items must be in usable condition, and we will not accept outdated formats or textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc. Donations must be brought up to the front counter during hours the library is open; please do not set items out front or put them in our book drop.

Preschool Story Hour

Join us every Friday morning at 10:30 in the children's area for preschool story hour! This usually consists of stories, songs & rhymes, and a craft, and you can come as often as you wish or your schedule allows. We hope you will join us!

New Puzzles for Kids!

We have several new children's puzzles added to our collection (in-library use). Bring your children or grandchildren in and spend some time at the library!

Digital Materials are Available 24/7!

Interested in ebooks, audiobooks, music, movies, or TV shows? Checkout these items from the comfort of your home through the apps Axis 360, Libby, and Hoopla, and download directly to your device. A great way to read or watch on the go! If you need any assistance at all, a staff member will be happy to help!

Crafts Available

Did you know that we continually offer a craft in our children's area for your little ones? You are welcome to complete the craft here or take it home to do later (if applicable).
