‘Tis the season to be reading and visiting 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—all you need is your library card to borrow them 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 play to meet.  

We are delighted to offer a Christmas-themed and winter-themed storytime as well as a hands-on quilling class this month. We are also having our monthly book club meeting and Open Mic Night! These colder months are a great time to come inside and learn a new craft or play a few board games with friends and family.
