Wesley Nurse to begin bi-monthly visits to Taft Library

The month of May was a very busy. I would like to thank the Taft Public Library Board, the Friends of the Taft Public Library, and my wonderful volunteers for all of their support. I am enjoying this new position. It has been wonderful, and I am truly blessed. 

Mr. Kippy, is back and will have story time on Wednesdays in June. Times are 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at our library. 

We are planning other special programs for later in June and July so please keep watching for these things posted on our digital sign. One of the things we are working on is the Wesley Nurse coming in and taking care of our patron’s questions and concerns. She will run blood pressure checks also glucose checks, as well as other disease processors. Her first day will be June 10 at 9 a.m. She will be here every other Monday.
