It's time for Summer Reading!

This summer we will "Read Off the Beaten Path" together, earning fun prizes and having fun events along the way. Stop into the library anytime on or after Monday, June 6 to sign-up and get your materials for summer reading!

We need your help!

Dominy Library is committed to serving our community and providing relevant and current services. We would like to gather opinions and information from the community in order to guide our direction in the coming years by conducting a COMMUNITY SURVEY! Any information you wish to share with us is welcome and appreciated. Upon completion of the survey, you may be entered to win a drawing for one of three $50 gift cards to local businesses.

2021 Blade Files Available

The 2021 Blade issues have been added to the archives on our website. Go to the Resources tab, then click "The Blade Archives."

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!

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 Items must be in usable condition, and we will not accept outdated formats or textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.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!

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!
