Avalon Free Public Library Children's Room Mural Dedication
Avalon Free Public Library Children's Room Mural Dedication
Children's Room Mural Dedication Video
We recently had an artist come in to the library and paint a mural in the children's room. The children of Avalon Elementary School collaborated with artist Valerie Waywell-Pearson to create a fantastic result! Due to the success of our book sale and other fundraisers, the Friends of the Library were kind enough to fund the project. Next time you stop by the library, make some time to see the mural. It is truly an impressive work of art!
Ballroom Dancing returns to the Avalon Library!
Beginner Ballroom Dancing with Ron and Barbara Troy. Thursdays, June 12 to August 7. The instructor will be teaching Foxtrot, Rumba, Hustle, Waltz, and Swing during the beginner classes.

Discontinuing OneClick Digital
Due to the lack of usability for our patrons, we have decided to move on from OneClick Digital. If you were a OneClick Digital user, we recommend checking out our OverDrive collection. Also, we are getting a new platform called Hoopla in the coming months. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 609-967-7155 or stop by the circulation desk!

Why you should be overly excited for OverDrive!

Have you ever finished a book that you picked up from the library and wish it would just fly itself back and send you over another book? Well, fortunately for you, technology allows us to do just that! Downloading OverDrive will allow you to literally download eBooks and Audiobooks directly to your smartphone, tablet, or computer! Once you finish the book or the borrowing period is up, the book is automatically returned! If it seems to be too confusing, fear not! Bring your device in on June 12th at 4:00pm and we will help you get started! If you cannot make our download workshop, feel free to stop in whenever it is convenient for you. Our staff can help you with any questions you may have!
