Comic Book Night

Comic Book Night has come and gone and we had a wonderful time.  The Library would like to thank Sam Weber and Fantasy Books of Belleville for making sure everyone had a great time.  Sam brought us comic books to give away, Nichole took great pictures, the popcorn was great, and our Library Board supported us by helping us by filling in with willing hands wherever they could.

Here are a few of the pictures taken that night.

Let Freedom Ring!

In honor of Independence Day, the library will be closed on the Fourth of July.

To get everyone in the spirit of the holiday, here's Emerson's famous poem about the Revolutionary War that immortalized the phrase, "the shot heard round the world."

Don't forget the fireworks at Liederkranz on the 4th, starting at 9 p.m.

Concord Hymn by Ralph Waldo Emersonbooks-american-flag-overlay-900

"By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world,

The foe long since in silence slept,
Alike the Conqueror silent sleeps,
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone,
That memory may their deed redeem,
When like our sires our sons are gone.

Spirit! who made those freemen dare
To die, or leave their children free,
Bid time and nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and Thee."
