August Eclipse eclipse
A solar eclipse will be visible only in the United States on August 21 -
The Great American Eclipse!
On Saturday, August 12 at 10:30am bring the whole family to the library! We will be learning about eclipses and safe ways to look at the sun. Participants will also make a pinhole projector to use on the 21st!  BYOB (box) - we will provide supplies for the projector as long as they last. The program is free, but please register to attend. Everyone is welcome! If you cannot make it to the library, we still encourage you to follow these guidelines for safe viewing.
Return to the library on the day of the eclipse! A partial eclipse will be visible from approximately 11:30 am until about 2:30 pm with a peak viewing time at about 1:00 pm. We will be giving away special glasses that will let you look safely at the sun! Bring your pinhole projector for comparison. Seating will be available in the parking lot for those who need it. We also hope to have live streaming of the total eclipse in the conference room.

Tiny Tots Story Time

Look for Tiny Tots to return in September! A tiny tots reading program will be held once a month at 10 a.m. Registration is required and a parent must attend. Tots ages 18 months to Pre-K will explore colors, shapes, letters, numbers and words with stories, crafts and activities. Program dates will be announced on Facebook.

Book Sale
  • The Library now has books for sale year round!  The new book sale tables are in the north lobby.
  • The friends of the library hold a book sale, typically, the first weekend in December. The sale includes hardback, paperback, non-fiction, mystery, romance, western, and other fiction books. Donations of books for the sale are accepted just before each sale. Funds raised benefit the Stroud Public Library.

Summer Reading Program
Every summer in June the library hosts a reading program for children and families as part of the Collaborative Summer Library Program. Programs are for toddlers through fifth grade with story time, crafts, and games.  Space is limited, so registration is required.
