A big thanks goes out to YOU – our patrons. You stopped in more than 50,000 times to the Sidney, Sidney Center, and Masonville libraries to borrow books, rent DVD’s, play with puppets, or attend one of our 497 different programs in 2014.
For a small town we are proud to offer a variety of children’s, young adult, and adult books – both fiction and non-fiction. Last year you borrowed over 93,000 books, and this year we hope there will be even more books circulated.
We love getting to know you and your families, and helping you save money by borrowing our library books and DVD’s for free.
If you do your taxes and would like free copies of common tax forms such as the 1040 and 1040EZ, stop by the Sidney Library. By the end of January we should have a variety of these forms for you to take. Check for the display in our DVD and Wireless Room.
