Longmire series author Craig Johnson will be visiting as part of the 2016 Library Festival.The 2016 Library Festival Will Be Better Than Ever!

We're taking the opportunity of the Festival's Five Year Anniversary to freshen it up a bit and try a few different things.  The biggest change is the the Library Festival is moving to the fall this year, September 7-10, 2016. Rescheduling the Festival allows us to avoid some scheduling conflicts that have come up over the years and to better use library resources.  

Don't worry, though -- all your favorites will be back!  There will be a musical program, a published anthology, and Longmire series author Craig Johnson as a special guest!

Watch our Library Festival webpage for news of the festival schedule, anthology deadlines, and big announcements.

Then, join us in September for the best Library Festival ever!
