Fall in love with a new book or movie this February at the Riverview Library

FROM THE LIBRARY

The Riverview Veterans Memorial Library is adding almost 350 new books, magazines and DVDs to its collection each month and all you need is your library card to borrow great materials for up to three weeks! We also provide free access to the internet, free community programming and free use of the community room for most groups needing a place to meet. These colder months are a great time to come inside and hear about creating a story with a published author or play a board game with friends and family. Our events are always free and only require registration by phone or a quick stop at our circulation desk. Wishing you a wonderful February and we hope to see you soon and often!
