Pre-school story hour with Jessica!

Li'l Ones Story Hour with Jessica will resume on August 21! The theme is 'You Can!' to go along with next summer's theme of 'You Can Fly!' Story hour starts at 11 with Jessica reading a short easy book. Next, everyone makes a craft and then there is a snack. The program is designed to start getting your little ones used to the library and each other and it also gives the caregivers a little adult interaction. Come and join in!

Palestine Public Library is partnering with the Crawford County Model Railroaders to display Model Trains and Memorabilia at the Palestine High School Gym on Saturday and Sunday, September 1st and 2nd.  

The display is free and open to the public.  Be sure to stop by the Palestine Library display where we will have a Lego Train set up and also have books and items that have been collected over the years.

​We will have water on sale for $1 while supplies last.  So when your feet get tired and you need a rest- think of us at the High School Gym.  

All books can be placed on hold or ordered with our SHARE button found on each web page.  Use your library barcode for your username and the last four digits for your PIN #.  Order books and we'll call you when they are ready!
