Mark your calendar for the regular meeting of the VZ County Genealogical Society which includes the “Show and Tell.” This is a yearly November tradition and that is very interesting and fun! Members bring artifacts, documents, and stories to share about their research, families, community. Come join the fun. The meeting begins at 2 p.m. in the Buchanan Room at the main library.
The library is located at 317 First Monday Lane, just up from that helpful stoplight at the intersection of Hwy 64 and FM 859. We are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday. It is important to remember that the library will be closed Nov. 25-26 for Thanksgiving. Be sure to come early in the week to get your books for a relaxing Thanksgiving read.
Besides many books, audio books, DVDs, magazines, and newspapers, the library offers free use of computers and WiFi. The WiFi is still available in the parking lot even when the building is closed. Printing and copying are also available for a fee. Visit www.vanzandtlibrary.org for the schedule and upcoming events, or visit us on FaceBook.
