Cherryvale Library Will Be Closing

It is with a very heavy heart that we must close the library to the public due to the current issues with the Coronavirus. Our local schools are closed, most of the libraries have closed, and the service that brings books to us has stopped service. This is a very […]

Should the recommendation be made then our Board […]

Lions and Lambs, Oh My!

In Kansas you are never quite certain how the weather for the day will take shape. March crept in like a lamb, so I hope that won’t mean it will roar out like a lion. Our community has been tortured enough these past weeks with great loss of personal property […]

And so it goes!

It has been a beautiful weekend. The Chiefs won and the days were warm with a gentle breeze. So much for that! As of 6:00 am Tuesday morning we will be under a winter weather advisory. Good old Kansas, if you don’t like the weather just wait 10 minutes and […]

Super Bowl Weekend

For those who follow this American tradition we salute you. Those of us who are bookworms shall recline in quiet reflection while we attempt to figure out the impossible: will she or won’t she; did he really do it; and a favorite will they stay in love forever. The magic […]

Thank Goodness It’s Thursday!

The week has been moving right along for us at the library. We received a delivery of new items along with two large donations of very nice books. So, on the not so busy days staff will be looking through the donations to determine their fate. Looks like we received […]

My Thoughts

Today many of us said our final farewells to a local “boy”. He was the sweetest gentleman and loving family member. Bobby grew up in Cherryvale and always remained one of the favorite sons in the community. His passing will be felt for years to come. Like many, our family […]

Martin Luther King Day

Good day! Since folks have been asking, yes, we will be open on Monday, January 20th.

Technology Issues Continue

We are still working on the web page. There seems to be a difference of opinion as to when it works, mostly never, and when it doesn’t work, almost always. Please be patient as we continue the good fight with technology. As to where we have been, our director has […]

Snow, Snow, Let It Go!

If you live in our area then you know about the snow, ice, and oh my, the rain. Maybe we were the ocean floor at one time, but certainly not now! No water falling of any kind dance will be done today! We will be glad to see and feel […]

The Tax Dance!!

There is only one week left before our community votes to EXTEND the current city Sales Tax. Sales Tax is the fairest way to help our city help us. Thousands of dollars are paid to our city in the form of sales taxes. This is a tax that you and […]

The Sun is Shining! Not!!

The Sun may be out, but it is cold and windy today. Just a typical Kansas day. Good time to grab that book you have been wanting to read and a cup of hot tea or cocoa. The Valentine cookie orders are in and next week our Friends of the […]

It’s Snowing Outside!

What a beautiful sight. Soft gentle flakes of snow and the reminder that we are in the middle of winter. Ok, now for the reality, go to the store now and get your milk, bread, cookies, soda, and meat before we become snowbound. Also, don’t forget to stop by your […]
