Weather-Related Schedule Changes

Brrr! Due to the cold temperatures and likelihood of more snow, all Martin Luther King Jr. Day events at Muhlenberg County Public Libraries have been cancelled. The open house for Thistle Cottage featured artist Asa Jessup will instead be held Saturday, Jan 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The library board will meet next Monday, Jan. 22, at 4:30 p.m. at Thistle Cottage.
Stay safe and warm!
