Draft above shows Murphy-Helwig Library's vision for its 2015 / 2016 construction remodeling and enhancement project totaling close to $1MM. The project is complete, so please visit our website & Facebook page to see photos of the construction phases & finished interior / exterior photos.
Nice, eager, friendly, highly-trained librarians are standing by, waiting to help you find the information for which you're looking. Spend some time browsing the links on the library's website to find suggestions for a good book to which to listen or read.
The library is much more than a place to check out books. We have programs and services for everyone in our community: publications & guides, reference materials & resources, fax services, large meeting room supplied with audio-visual equipment, private study rooms, youth & children's areas, inter-library loan, all-ages programming, magazines, downloadable e-books & audio books or books on tape, "Learning Express" & other learning programs for reviewing your skills and preparing for tests, DVDs & videos, cozy stuffed lounge chairs with fireplace reading area, etc.
Please check the calendar for all current events. We look forward to seeing you at the library!
Murphy-Helwig Library is proud to have a monthly "Coffee House" held on the first Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. 12 noon, highlighting a different monthly topic. At this time there are coffee and refreshments available & everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
Bookworms, our local library support group, often sponsors a speaker from the area at these events. Book discussions are held twice a year during the months of October and April, at which time we'll publish specific details on titles, dates, and times.
Our library buys the books and materials that we think are most wanted by our community. Because of limited resources and space we can’t buy everything that is published, but we can usually get it from another library. This is called "inter-library loan"
Murphy-Helwig Library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation. So if you can't find an item in this library, ask library staff to help you get it from another library. We're part of a vast network of participating libraries that are willing to loan out materials to other libraries so that everyone has everything they need.
We enjoy reading just as much as you do & we'd love to talk to you about books. Stop into the library to see our displays of featured books, talk to a librarian about what you're reading, or get ideas on what to read next.
