Lincoln County public libraries: January events and new hours announced

Print Article

New hours: Beginning Jan. 2, the Libby library will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Feeling the winter blues? In partnership with the Libby Friends of the Library, the Libby library presents “Light Reading,” a new program to provide full spectrum light therapy lamps for public use throughout the winter. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is estimated to affect up to 10 million Americans every year, and the standard treatment is at least 30 minutes under a light therapy lamp. No diagnosis is required. Simply stop by the Libby library.

Come in from the cold: Every Saturday morning at the Libby library, warm up with a cup of locally roasted coffee and homemade pastries. Sit, relax, enjoy the company of others or simply read the newspaper. Coffee is provided by Camp Creek Coffee and pastries are donated by the Libby Friends of the Library.

Preschool story time will be at the Libby library on Tuesdays at 10:15 a.m., the Troy library on Fridays at 11:15 a.m. and the Eureka library on Thursdays at 11:30 a.m.

Chess games will be every Saturday at the Troy library from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Jan. 5, 10:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Libby Friends of the Library Book Sale.

Jan. 13: Troy and Eureka libraries will be closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

Jan. 15: Libby Library will be closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

Jan. 18, 10 a.m.: Board Meeting at the Troy library

Jan. 20, 11 a.m.: Join us at the Libby library for “A Hot Drink and A Good Book,” our monthly book discussion. This month features “The Woman in Cabin 10” by Ruth Ware. When travel journalist Lo Blacklock is invited on a boutique luxury cruise around the Norwegian fjords, it seems like a dream career opportunity. But the trip takes a nightmarish turn when she wakes in the middle of the night to hear a body being thrown overboard. Copies are available at the library.

Jan. 26: Amnesty Day — all items turned in that less than 90 days overdue and in good condition will have fines waived.
