Beginning in July, the Sidney Library will offer both a summer reading program and movie showings specifically for adults. We will keep you posted when more information is available.

Are you taking a road trip this summer? Stop in to the library and browse our extensive audiobook selection – there are audiobooks (books on CD) available for adult fiction and nonfiction, and YA (young adult) and children’s books too. They are great option for those who will be spending several hours traveling.
