Happy New Year from the Athena Public Library!

We had such an amazing year in 2022, I can’t wait to see what’s to come in 2023.

A few highlights from 2022:

This year we were awarded a $10,000 ALA Grant to bring arts and humanities to our community. With this grant we were able to contribute.

We got new carpet throughout the library and rearranged for a new look.

Said goodbye to a great Library Director and wished her well with her new job, and said hello to a new Director.

We hired a teen intern throughout the summer. This was a great experience we hope to do again in the future. Our intern Luna Dennett contributed so much in the 6 weeks she worked with the library.

In the winter, we saw Santa and got to host a Giving Tree for our community. Our tree had 65 tags this year, and I am so thankful to be a part of such a great community.

These are just a few highlights, among many other things our library did this year.

Look for more great things to come in 2023.

In January we have the following events to start the new year:

  • Weekly story time on Tuesdays at 10:30am
  • Book Club on Monday, January 23, 2022, reading If the Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss
  • Adult craft night on Sunday, January 8, 2023 from 3:00-4:00pm. Sign up required.
  • Weekly Crafternoon Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm

We will be closed Monday, January 2nd and Monday, January 16th.
