The staff and volunteers of the Elma Ross Public Library wish everyone a happy, healthy, and blessed Christmas season. The library will be closed on Tuesday (24th), Wednesday (25th), and Thursday (26th) in observance of Christmas. Peace be to you.
Next week we will be starting a new year. A new year! The year 2014. The Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 in observance of New Year’s Day. We hope and pray that everyone has a safe, happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
Since we will be starting a brand new year, the library will be starting a new program called “Geek the Library.” We’ll bet that you are asking yourselves “What in the world is ‘Geek the Library’?” The “Geek the Library’ campaign, which is a statewide program by the way, is a marketing tool used by libraries to find out what YOU, our patrons, are passionate about and how in turn, the library can help you with your achieve your passions. We want to hear from you! What do you love, what are you passionate about? We’ll tell you what we “geek.” As a library, we “geek” knowledge/information. As an individual, the Library Director “geeks” clocks. Clocks, really? Yes, really, she started her clock collection while a teenager and continues to collect them today. One can never have too many clocks. She also has many other things that she “geeks.” Like what, you ask? She also “geeks” playing the flute, antiques, and frogs. So if you were to find an antique frog-playing clock, she would just be tickled pink! Whatever you are passionate about, whatever you “geek”, the library can help you, so let’s get our geek on! As the new year progresses, there will be more information about upcoming programs where we will “Geek the Library”.
Happy Reading!

Due to the icy conditions on the first Friday of this month, the Gingerbread House Family Night event had to be rescheduled. The rescheduled date is for tomorrow, Friday, December 20th, at 7pm. If you already registered for this event, you will remain registered. If you registered for this event, but cannot attend because of the date change, please contact the library at 772-9534. We are looking forward to a great time at Gingerbread House Family Night!
The Elma Ross Public Library will be closed the following dates for the Christmas holidays: Tuesday, December 24th; Wednesday, December 25th, and Thursday, December 26th. The Elma Ross Public Library will also be closed on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 in honor of New Year’s Day.
Since we will be starting a new year soon, the library will be starting a new, great, and exciting program called “Geek the Library” beginning in January. We are excited about this program and we hope that you will be excited about it too. What is Geek the Library? We are glad that you asked. We’ve all heard the term “geek’ before, sometimes in relation to ourselves even. Instead of calling someone a “geek” as in a noun, we are using the term “geek” as a verb.
Geek\Verb. 1: To love, to enjoy, to celebrate, to have an intense passion for. 2: To express interest in. 3: To possess a large amount of knowledge in. 4: To promote. Starting January 1st, we are going to “Geek Our Library” and find out what is important to you and how the library can help you achieve your goals and to maintain the library as a focal point in the community. Let’s get our Geek on!
Happy Reading!

We are SOOOOOO excited about tomorrow night’s Gingerbread House Family Night event! We have such great fun every year at this program. We’ll read the stories of “The Gingerbread Baby” and “Gingerbread Friends”, then make gingerbread houses from milk cartons, frosting, graham crackers and candy. There will be lots, and lots of great fun!
There are not too many programs planned for the month of December here at the library. If you have any ideas for programs that you would like to see done here at the library, please contact us and let us know. We are always on the lookout for some great programming ideas. The Library will be closed on Dec. 24th, 25th, and 26th in Observance of the Christmas Holiday.
Happy Reading!
