Greetings! We've got so much going on at the library this month.

Did you see that we're hiring? We are currently seeking a part-time teen librarian, as well as several substitutes. See below for details or stop by to pick up an application packet at the circulation desk.

We're excited to report that work is underway on our new HVAC (heating, ventilation, and cooling) system. Just a reminder that there may be temporary closures of the back parking lot, restricting access to the back door and outside book drop. The alley may be partially blocked at times, too. Thanks again for your patience!

There are programs this month for all ages, including the B.E.A.R. Faire for kids, concert, tech classes, and more.

And finally, stop by and check something out from our Siuslaw Reading Challenge display for March. This month's topic is nonfiction science.
See you at the library!
It's a new year and a new reading challenge! We've got 12 new themes, and new chances to win monthly prizes ($5 to the Friends of Siuslaw Public Library bookstore, courtesy of the Friends), as well as our grand prize drawing for those who complete the challenge for all 12 months. See the full details and list of themes on our website:

March's theme is: nonfiction science.

Happy reading!
