Aragon Li­brary needs com­mu­nity help for new shelv­ing

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

As the hol­i­days ap­proach and the weather turns colder, there’s noth­ing like the com­fort of get­ting warm un­der a blan­ket with a cop of hot co­coa and read­ing a good book.

One lo­cal li­brary is hop­ing that love of read­ing will spur some donors to help them with a par­tic­u­lar need: new shelv­ing.

Reba Tan­ner, who runs the li­brary room at the Brenda Gaz­a­way Mu­nic­i­pal Com­plex, said that though she’s asked for help be­fore from the city for some ad­di­tional shelv­ing to ex­pand the avail­able col­lec­tion to pa­trons she hasn’t got­ten any help yet.

So she’s ask­ing the com­mu­nity to give back one more time in or­der to help in­crease the shelv­ing space the Aragon Li­brary has avail­able for the many ti­tles they still have in boxes.

“We have plenty of books, the com­mu­nity was so gen­er­ous in that re­gard,” she said.

What’s needed she said is space up off the floor or out of the boxes hold­ing thou­sands of books she and her hus­band Buddy have been go­ing through af­ter dona­tions came in ear­lier in the year af­ter the li­brary’s open­ing.

Those in­ter­ested in help­ing the Tan­ner’s get more books out to the pub­lic need only to con­tact them at city hall when the li­brary is open, dur­ing hours when the com­plex is open to the pub­lic. Those are week­days ex­cept for Wed­nes­days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed for lunch.

More in­for­ma­tion about get­ting a li­brary card, or uti­liz­ing the li­brary’s re­sources can be had by call­ing 77-684-6563 or vis­it­ing city hall.

Com­put­ers and free wifi are avail­able for use at the li­brary as well.
