Enjoy a Reiki Session and Help Raise Money for the Library

Reiki is a form of healing energy within us and all around us. A Reiki practitioner helps focus this energy during a session for the highest good of the person receiving the healing. A Reiki session facilitates deep relaxation which supports and encourages the body’s natural healing process. Join us Saturday, September 20th, from 12-2pm with Susan Olin-Dabrowski, Reiki Master/Teacher for a session and to help raise money for the library. Sessions are 1/2 hour. $20.00/Table Session. $15.00/Chair Session. Appointments are necessary and payment is due when making the appointment. Spots fill up fast so please come to the library to sign up as soon as possible.

Parade Volunteers Needed!!!

SAVE THE DATE: Kids and Parents! Sunday, September 14 may seem far away, but it’s never to so too soon to plan to march in the Pleasant Valley Days Parade with the Pleasant Valley Library contingent! Step-off will be at 1. You will have soon choices: dress up as your favorite book character, or wear a “Cat-in-the-Hat” Hat, or carry a sign about neat stuff you can get at the Library! We want to have a BIG presence, so get a friend to come too! Creativity is always appreciated. And, if you have a Dr. Suess hat that we might borrow for the parade, please let us know.

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.

It’s been mentioned before, but bears repeating.  The Book Discussion Group meets on the Third Wednesday of every month from 7-8 pm. Check out our events calendar for a listing of which titles have been picked for discussion.
