SUMMER READING is HERE!
Summer Reading is fun and free!
Each child receives a log book to keep track of the books read over the summer. We give a small incentive prize each time a child visits the bookmobile. Sign up on the bookmobile or at the Sawmill Library.
Cool new books! This summer, we are adding over 100 books on science and technology subjects thanks to a generous grant from the Alcoa Foundation. Additionally, we will add more than 175 books on geography, countries of the world, natural resources, and recent history thanks to a Williams Community Grant.
Every child has a superhero inside!
Thank you to the Williams Community Grant program!
With their generous $8,175 gift, we will be able to update our out-of-date children's collection with about 180 new books on geography, current events, natural resources and world history.
Just as exciting, we will finally be able to offer public computer with a printer. The 2011 flood caused our already out-of-date computer to frizzle and quit.
We cannot wait to put these gorgeous new books on the bookmobile!

Not familiar with the Traveling Library?
The Columbia County Traveling Library is a free public library for all residents of Columbia County -- on wheels. Our bookmobile carries a wide selection of current bestselling books for adults and children, including large print titles, audiobooks on CDs and popular DVDs.
We invite you to visit the bookmobile at one of our community stops throughout Columbia County: Beaver Township, Benton, Catawissa, Central, Locust Township, Mifflinville, Millertown, Millville, North Centre, Rohrsburg and Stillwater.
The bookmobile regularly visits many daycares and preschools, senior citizens centers, businesses and schools. Click Bookmobile Schedule (pdf) to download a copy.
