March into reading 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. Your public library is a great place to hear about creating a story with a published author or to compete in puzzle competition 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 March and we hope to see you soon and often!
