All Together Now

#Summer Reading Plans?  

Whether it's a sizzling summer romance for that much-deserved day at the beach, a cozy mystery for that long flight or night in... or the perfect nonfiction audiobook for that cross-country road trip - you can count on the Library to have all of the hottest titles! Book your next visit to the Library. And with all the money you save from those FREE books, that just means more money towards your next vacation (or stay-cation)! 

Beyond the Panel


New Book Club Alert!

There's something for everyone in the world of comics and graphic novels! Join us Thursday, June 8 at 4 p.m. (and every second Thursday of the month) at Pablo Creek Regional Library for "Beyond the Panel Book Club" and explore genres you might have overlooked! Note: No specific book is required to be read to attend this book club. Just show up, tell us what you're reading and walk away with great recommendations!

In June, we'll be discussing: Superhero comics! What started with Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the creators of the Man of Steel himself, has evolved to multiple universes of superheroes with rich histories and a diverse range of stories.
