Our Shelves Overfloweth
The library has received a very generous donation of books and VHS tapes. If you still have a tape player and love Westerns, Disney films, Musicals, or feature films of the 1990’s and 2000’s we have a fantastic selection for you to browse. Also, if you have a penchant for reading, there’s also a large choice of well know authors from the same period. Come and browse for some great deals.
Proceeds and donations of our ongoing book sale benefit the Friends of Horicon Library who, in turn, fill gaps within the library budget. This year the Friends donated funds to update our creative play area. There’s a new kitchen island complete with pots and pans. For the non-baker, we have a tool bench or train table to spark their imagination. A generous patron has allowed us to add a storage bench large enough to hold a variety of play food and utensils. We encourage parents and caregivers to play along with their young ones modeling positive social development through cooperative play and making new friends, improve motor skills, and pose intriguing questions spurring intellectual and cognitive abilities.
While you’re visiting check out our Early Literacy Center with activities designed to introduce letters and numbers to our youngest of readers or enjoy a drop-in craft.
The Friends of Horicon Library are thrilled to be to support everyone’s literacy journey, especially the first steps.
