The library recently received two grants that will help to better serve the citizens of Piedmont and the surrounding areas. The first is an education grant that will allow the library director to attend online training classes for one year through the University of Alabama. The second is an automation grant which will replace all of the public access computers at the library. Both grants will become active in October, and the library hopes to have the new computers up and running by November.
They also hope to have beginner computer classes for those who wish to learn the basics of computer use.
In addition to the grants, the library also has a costume party planned for Thursday, October 17th, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Professional storyteller Tracy Sue Walker will entertain with spooky stories, and the library will provide snacks and a picture backdrop to take pictures of all the ghosts and ghouls. There will also be fall crafts and games to take part in.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free event!
The Library Book Club meets once a month to discuss books and share refreshments and is always looking for new members! The next meeting is Tuesday, September 17th, at 6 p.m.
