The Weaverville Library has new signs to help patrons find collections within the library. Many thanks to Jim Casebolt and Nancy Gorham who made the signs and to Merritt Goodyear at Trinity Lumber who donated the wood and supplies.
Story Time for toddlers and preschoolers and their caregivers will be held every Thursday at 10:30 am this month except December 28th at the Trinity County Library in Weaverville. Themes will include bears, shadows, and winter. Please come join us!
Sarah moved to Trinity County in July 2017 and was fortunate to join the Weaverville branch team as a library assistant. She is very grateful to have the privilege of serving such a warm, welcoming community, alongside the wonderful (and patient) library staff and volunteers. Previously, Sarah taught special education at an elementary school in Denver. She’s excited to continue sharing her passion for learning with the youngest library patrons during Story Time on Thursday mornings.
Sarah grew up spending hours at her local library, poring over books with her sister. Libraries were critical in her literacy development as a daughter of immigrants. She is honored to work for such an important public institution. Her favorite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, full of timeless lessons for readers of all ages.
The ZIP Books program has been renewed for another year and will be available through August 31, 2018. The Zip Books program allows patrons to order an item not owned by their local library and have it shipped to them directly from Amazon—at no cost to the patron. Once you have read the book, return it to the library and order another one.
Beginning September 25, Trinity County Library in Weaverville will have a display of the most frequently challenged books from last year. The display is part of Banned Books Week, September 24 through September 30, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read
