A community of readers

Wow! Fallon is truly a community of readers. The long term checkout option which allowed select materials to be returned in March 2015 was a huge success. Books that would otherwise have been in storage are now in Fallon homes to be read and enjoyed until the Re-purpose Project is complete in March 2015. Particularly popular were children’s picture books, fiction, large print, gardening, cooking, and do it yourself titles.

Library Storytime is being held at the Churchill County Museum at 1050 S. Maine St., on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. This is a great opportunity to listen to stories and do a craft with your children. It’s a fun time for everyone!
