A recent grant allowed us to add more than 140 biographies in the children's room. Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
Paris Public Library's weekly fall storyhour series will begin on October 29. Storyhour is a weekly program of stories, fingerplays, and simple crafts for children ages 3, 4, and 5. It meets on Wednesday mornings, 10:30-11:15, from October 29 through December 10.
Children who are aged 3 and older by Oct. 1 may attend. Call 463-3950 or come to the library for more information or to register.
Paris Public Library buys hundreds of new books, audiobooks, and DVDs each year. The library now offers you weekly email alerts showing you the newest books, DVDs, and audio books added to the library each week. We hope you'll enjoy hearing about the many exciting bestsellers, movies, and recorded books almost the very moment they arrive at the library.

The loan period for the newest fiction at Paris Public Library has increased from 1 week to 3 weeks.
New books are still located on the white shelves near the main desk. They have a 21-Day sticker inside the cover and may not be renewed.
