Thank You FRIENDS of the Ada Public Library!

The Ada Public Library would like to extend a big THANK YOU to the FRIENDS of the Ada Public Library for their support in purchasing a new storytime rug for our Meeting Room. The rug was unveiled and enjoyed by our families this morning, with many children excited as to what objects or letters they were sitting on!

Kiwanis Service Project at the Library

Today Ada's Kiwanis group held it's meeting at the Ada Public Library. After a brief introduction to the history of the library  Library Director, Amanda Bennett, shared some statistics about library services, and discussed 2014 in review with Kiwanians present. After a Q&A, members offered their time to the library, assisting in the cleaning of DVDs, and shelf reading (reading spine labels to make sure materials are in alphabetical order.)


The Ada Public Library would like to thank Ada Kiwanis for their hard work!
