Noon Year’s Eve Party

It’s back! We had such fun last year that our Noon Year’s Eve Party is returning. We’ll read a story, play a game, make a simple craft or two, then welcome 2020 at NOON with more noise than usually heard in a library.  Activities are planned with 3 to 5-year-olds in mind, but a little younger or a little older are welcome, too. The room will only hold so many so –please sign your child up in advance by calling 217-463-3950, emailing read@parispubliclibrary.org, or messaging the library on Facebook.

New health books added

We are pleased to announce that Paris Public Library recently received an All of Us Consumer Health Collection Award from the Greater Midwest Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

The award granted up to $1000 in consumer health books for the library. We received 51 books; all of which are now available for checkout.
