To celebrate National Library Week, there will be no fines on overdue items returned between Sunday, April 7th and Saturday, April 13th.
The library is accepting donations for the Friends of Washington Library (FoWL) spring book sale March 18th-30th. All donations can be brought to the front desk of the Main Library during normal operating hours. No textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS, cassette tapes, or Reader’s Digest compilations, please.
Welcome to the new Washington District Library website. Please update any bookmarks you have to our new URL, washingtondl.org. We welcome feedback on your experience with the site – please use our contact form.
All DVDs and Blu-Ray discs that check out for 7 days (older movies and all TV shows) will now be eligible for one 7-day renewal, as long as the items do not have holds. New movies, which check out for 3 days, cannot be renewed.
Every January, Friends of Washington Library (FOWL) sponsors the Super Bowls silent auction. We ask patrons and businesses to donate any themed basket of items to display for two weeks. These “bowls” make wonderful birthday gifts and Valentine’s surprises. Popular themes are sports, food and wine packages, new baby baskets, quilting items, coffees and teas, spa products, reading-themed items, etc.
This year we encourage people to donate “services” like a year of homemade cookies, a day of yard work, etc. As with all FOWL projects, all proceeds help the library to add to its collection and sponsor events.
Bring Super Bowls to the Main Library from January 14-20. They will be displayed January 21-February 2. Questions? Call Sue at 444-7621.
The library board has voted to put Sunday hours into place on a permanent basis. The Main Library will continue to be open 1:00-5:00 pm on Sundays.
