Story Time with Granny Apple resumes with a new day and time, beginning at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, October 2nd. Story Times are conducted in the Margaret E. Kayser Room (main floor, children's wing) on Tuesday's during the school year, whenever school is in session. If the Alton schools are closed for holidays, vacations or inclement weather, the Story Time normally held on that day will also be canceled.
Many community groups and organizations book their meetings in our Agnes Thompson Meeting room on the lower level. You are welcome to host your meeting here. All meetings are to be not-for-profit, open to the public and no monies charged for entrance. Just a friendly reminder: Monies for supplies may be collected, but sales of products are forbidden. We do allow authors to sell their books at library-sponsored events. Please think of us when searching for a venue for your group.

We appreciate your generous donations of gently used items. However, due to limited space, all donations need to be approved* at the circulation desk, rather than deposited in the after-hours-book-return-drop-box.
DVDs and CDs must never be dropped into the after-hours-book-return-drop-box, as they can be damaged by incoming returns.
The after-hours-book-return-drop-box is for just for returns only, returned after hours only. All other items should be returned directly to the circulation desk.
*Due to limited space, donations to our book sale must be gently used, and no older than five years. Additional criteria must be met to add items to the collection.
Thank you for your considerate cooperation.
Tuesday & Thursday: 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
