About the Tri-City Library District

The Tri-City Library District selects, acquires, organizes and provides access to books, magazines, cds, dvds and other materials of interest and/or permanent value. These items provide for the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the surrounding areas users. The Library also promotes the importance and appreciation of reading and community involvement from childhood through adult programs.

The Tri-City Library District site also serves as a central repository and online community center. We want everyone to look beyond the books and see the library as an important resource in the Tri-City area.

Construction began on the new library building on Monday.  A crew worked through the August heat and humidity to begin laying the footings for the foundation.  This has been a long process of planning and "meetings, bloody meetings" to get to this stage.  We will do occasional articles throughout the process and will regularly update our Facebook page with pictures and reports on the progress.  The new building is currently scheduled for completion in mid-April 2016.  Come by once in a while and watch us grow!

The Craft Activity Group is beginning work on a "Christmas in July" bazaar for July 2016.  The proceeds from the sale of their handcrafted items will benefit the Tri-City Public Library.  As they start work on their items that will be offered, they are looking for help with material donations.  Items they particularly would welcome include ribbon, empty thread spools, buttons, jute, fabrics, old jewelry and craft paint.  The craft group also welcomes anyone interested in sharing their expertise and time to these activities.  The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 1 pm at the Library.
