We are still looking for donations to replenish Miss Julie’s craft supplies that were lost in the fire. You can still purchase items off of our Amazon Wishlist to be sent directly to us. We ask that you only purchase items from this list so that we can keep track of what we have received- personal physical donations of craft supplies cannot be accepted at this time. Thank you so much!

We Are Not Accepting Book Donations in March

For the month of March, we are no longer accepting book donations.
We’ve received so many generous donations from our community and beyond, and now it is time for us to play catch-up!
We should be able to begin accepting donations again as of April 1st.
Thank you for your understanding and support!

Narcan Training

The Pleasant Valley Rotary Club along with the Library welcome Amanda Brennan, Public Health Education Coordinator/Opioid Educator. Narcan is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose. Join us on Tuesday, March 19th at 6pm to learn how to administer Narcan if an overdose is suspected. As part of the training, participants will receive a naloxone kit. If you have an expired kit, you can bring it with you and get an updated one. What better way to serve our community members; learn how to save a life!
