Temporary Location Closing July 10 to Begin Library Move
The library renovation and expansion project is coming to an end and the outside of the new library building is looking great! There’s still work that needs to be done on the inside including moving our entire collection into its new home and setting up public and staff spaces. Our temporary location (at 601 S. Oak St.) will close permanently and we will suspend curbside pickup service starting July 10 at 5 pm so we can begin the process of moving back into our library building at 120 N. Virginia Ave, which will re-open on Monday, August 16, at 10 am. Learn more...

Sign up for Summer Reading online starting June 1 on our new Beanstack website: mrspl.beanstack.org!
How It Works
Sign up and log your books through Beanstack, either on the webpage or through the Beanstack app! Once teens have read a minimum of 5 books and entered them into the log, they are eligible for a free paperback of their choice. They will also earn a coupon booklet and a raffle ticket for the Teen prize raffle. The library also offers a Reading Quest for strong readers for an additional raffle ticket if completed.
All teens who complete the program will be entered into the raffle for a Kindle Fire HD 8 or a gift certificate to local businesses. The Library Foundation generously provided the prizes for the Teen Raffle.
Programs & Events
Special programs, including performances and workshops held specifically for a teen audience, take place through mid-August. A schedule of events and list of local sponsors is available from the library each year by mid-June. All programs and events are also listed in the Mary Riley Styles Public Library calendarand in the Mary Riley Styles Public Library monthly newsletter.
Many thanks to the wonderful local businesses that have sponsored the Summer Reading Program over the years! Please visit and support them this summer.
