We want any library book you’ve read in October from the following: Picture Books, Easy Readers, Juvenile Fiction/Series, Juvenile Nonfiction, Teen Fiction/YA, Teen Nonfiction, and Audiobooks from those categories as well.

New AT&T Fiber Network Upgrade

New AT&T Fiber Network Upgrade

As you may have seen in our parking lot recently, AT&T has been doing work at Messenger Public Library. They are upgrading our internet to fiber optic network service. This means faster internet and continued tech support in the long run, as our old T1 lines are being phased out of service over the next few years. The T1 line provides access for our online catalog, checkout system, databases and more, so the transition will interrupt library services for brief periods in October.
