2013: A Year of Celebrations
This year the Halifax County Library bulletin board will be done like a perpetual calendar with the theme being "2013: A year of celebrations". Each month we will be showcasing different holidays or observances from around the nation and the globe. If you have any suggestions you want to submit for future boards, go to the linked website here to see what you think would be fun for us to "showcase" and then email or FB your picks to us.
Check It Out
NC Live is an excellent resource for librarians but it should be one for you too. There is so much information from college test preparation to information on small engine repair. If you want to check it out, call the library for more information on how to access the website www.nclive.org with our password.
Library outreach services are available to those individuals unable to travel to any of our five libraries. If you are interested in outreach services, please call 583-3631.
