Looks great!

Does it have to be a summer photo

Pricing for our large format printing is very reasonable, but depends upon each specific job as we have a variety of media to choose from, plain paper, heavyweight bond, posterboard and banner vinyl. Please call the library (692-4698} or stop in to discuss your individual project. Thanks!

Terry Brockman is wonderful and so helpful with this service πŸ™ŒπŸ½

We have started a creative project and we invite your participation! About a year ago, when the library renovation was still a dream and we were camped out at the temporary location, we heard a story about a typewriter in a bookstore and as stories go, we were inspired to do something similar but didn't yet have the space for it. So now, here we are, doing this thing that may seem odd but which is fun, enlightening, and creative. Here's the part where you enter the picture... stop by the library any time and type out a few words (or a lot of words) on the old Corona and leave them for the world to see. It's a collaboration of sorts. From time to time, we'll share some of your anonymous words which will encourage more people to jump in and be creative; art inspires art.

Our inspiration comes directly from PublicTypewriter and Literati Bookstore. There's a book! which we have available for checkout: Notes From a Public Typewriter by Michael Gustafson & Oliver Uberti.

A fun idea.

Get an old IBM electric typewriters for those of us that never used a manual typewriter.
