The hazy, lazy days of summer are upon us, but at the Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity, activities are bustling.  The concrete entranceway has been repaired, new landscaping in front of the Library has been completed and the summer reading programs for all ages are zooming along with the August 8th conclusion date rapidly approaching.  A laptop computer and a camera are now ready to be borrowed by Memorial Library card holders as well as new DVDs, audio books and books.  Through the generosity of a Dollar General Summer Reading Program grant, new Playaways (pre-loaded MP-3 audio book players) and books can be borrowed from the children's room.


Fall programs are being planned. We already have a blood drive scheduled for September 19th and our very popular Touch a Truck will be held on October 3rd.


Looking forward to seeing you at the Library!

Sipping for Summer Reading Success!

A very special thank you to the 78 people who attended the Sipping for Summer Reading fundraiser at Miguel's on June 30th and to the sponsors who contributed gift baskets and services for this event.  Your support is ensuring a memorable Summer Reading Program for our Library.

Laptop & Digital Camera Now Available to Borrow.
Nervous about taking that final step buying a laptop or digital camera and you want to try it out before taking the plunge?  Has your laptop or digital camera disappeared or stopped working and you need one fast for only a day or two? 

The Library has the answer for you!  We have available to Nazareth Library cardholders in good standing, a laptop and a digital camera.  Each can be borrowed for three days, renewable once if no one is waiting for it.  Come to the Library with your Library card, a parent or guardian if you're under 18, and a pen to sign the Equipment Borrower's Liability Agreement.
