Joan Sand, our Youth Librarian for the last 6+ years, has decided to work closer to home and her last day here at the Van Horn Public Library is Friday, September 22. All of us here at the library will miss her and wish her all the best in the future!
The position of Youth Librarian/Assistant Director is therefore open and we are currently accepting applications. Take a look at the job posting & position description on our Job Openings page.
We are painting upstairs at the library tomorrow, so we will be closing at 12:00. Come on in Monday to check out our fresh walls!
The Library is closed September 2-4 to celebrate Labor Day with our friends and family. We look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday, September 5!

We have book club tonight at Shawna’s Cafe on Main Street. I look forward to seeing you there to discuss The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson at 6:00!
Want to join us next month? We will be discussing Devil in the White City by Eric Larson on August 9.
School’s out. It’s hot and humid outside. That means it’s summer and time for our Summer Reading Program! This year’s theme is “Build a Better World” and you can see our schedule of events here. Come in this week to signup, then get reading!
We recently started a series of programs from The Lincoln Center called Lincoln Center On Screen. Unfortunately, the Lincoln Center has just announced that it is suspending this program as of July 1. Here is their announcement. What that means for us here is that the remaining viewings we had scheduled this year are cancelled until further notice. We are looking into other options to bring this kind of world-class cultural programming to Pine Island, so stay tuned!
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
To celebrate Memorial Day, the Van Horn Public Library will be closed from Friday, May 26 from 5pm through Monday, May 29. We will reopen on Tuesday the 30th for our regular hours – 12-8pm. Have a good and safe holiday!
