If you haven't been to the Williston Community Library lately, you're missing out. They have new books, fiction, non-fiction, children's, young adult, large print, audio books, playaways, DVDs, faxing and scanning services, internet, printing, copying, newspapers, and magazines. And lots of fun programs to keep you reading all summer long!

Come and learn about bees and their importance during a Bee STEAM event on Thursday, June 15. What could BEE more fun than learning all the BUZZ about honeybees from our local Oh Honey! Apiary?

Miranda and Mitch Melberg will educate us all about bees and their habitats on Thursday, June 15 in the library community room from 6:00pm-7:00pm. This event is for all ages and is free and open to the community.

And don't forget about the Williams County Bookmobile! The Bookmobile is quite literally a library on wheels. It travels hundreds of miles throughout the cities, townships, and communities of Williams County, North Dakota delivering library materials to  patrons each month. Along with books, magazines, and other library materials, they offer free Wi-Fi at each scheduled stop.

They offer call-ahead orders, curbside pickup, and no contact materials drop-off options as well as the option to browse for materials on the Bookmobile itself.

Summer Reading fun is available to any and all Bookmobile visitors. Summer Reading logs for children (full sheet with only books) AND grown-ups (bookmark with bookshelves).

This month's Take & Make crafts for kiddos is an adorable Love Bug Clip. They will also have origami kits for any teens and grown-ups who'd like to have some fun, too! These crafts will also be available to do during any of our park visits!
Interested in having the bookmobile visit your school, business, or daycare? Call Miss Tori for more information at 701.774.8805.
