Thank You to the Lakeland College Interior Design Program
We wish to offer a sincere thanks to the second-year students of the interior design program over at Lakeland College who took on the project of designing us a new work area. Their attention to detail and overall effort was A+ in our opinion! We look forward to incorporating many of their ideas into a more functional and aestetically pleasing work space. Please take a look at their design boards, either in person at the library or by browsing the pictures below.
Book Sale Held Over!
We are holding over our Spring Book Sale by one week, so come in enjoy half-price bargains - there is still a good selection!
Get Into Overdrive!
Vermilion Public Library now has a 'Virtual Branch'! It's called Overdrive, and is essentially a digital library where patrons can download eBooks (digital books, magazines or graphic novels), WMA or MP3 audiobooks (recorded readings of a book), videos or music onto their Mac or PC. From there, they can be transferred onto portable devices such as the Apple® iPod or the Sony® Reader. There are also features to aid those with visual impairments. Become introduced to this fabulous new resource...
Closed for Easter Weekend
The library will be closed on Good Friday, April 2nd and Saturday, April 3rd for the Easter long weekend. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Comics presentation was great!
Jay from Happy Harbor Comics and his two helpers did a fantastic job of enlightening us on the world of comics, while providing us with some stunning artwork - thanks again! We are also very thankful to the Vermilion Standard for their coverage and great article on the event. The kids had lots of questions and comments throughout the presentation, and were very enthusiastic.
