Introducing resources:

Your library has that!

 

Differences in opinions about real life topics may become apparent at holiday gatherings.  People react when the conversation turns to drug legalization, divorce, political polarization, prejudice and discrimination, welfare reform, gender identity… 

Well, your library has the perfect resource to help in any “discussions,” as well as for debaters and researchers! 

Opposing Viewpoints in Context

is a database containing reliable information on literally hundreds of controversial social topics.  You get pro/con perspectives from authoritative voices, clearly covering today’s hottest social issues.  

* Just one of the many, many databases brought to you by the LaFayette Public Library

The next Tuesday Tea is on December 20th

from 2:00 to 4:00


(held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month)

 

Please join us for our friendly gathering.

 

Bring some friends and enjoy chatting, coloring, knitting, working on a puzzle, or just sitting in a calm environment.

Light refreshments will be served.

Libraries are essential pillars of our democracy: they allow us to be better citizens by providing free and equal access to information, resources, and ideas.
Libraries are also central pillars of our humanity: they offer the chance to
explore the lives of others, their varied perspectives, and unique sufferings and triumphs.

We are committed to serving as a safe space for people to connect, learn, and
grow with and from one another.  Systemic racism, prejudice, and discrimination are counter to our mission and values, and we reject them in all their forms. We stand with library workers, with library users, and with members of the community we serve and support who have been mistreated, endangered, or threatened, simply for being who they are.

Puzzle Exchange

Have puzzles that you've finished and want a new challenge? 

Exchange your old ones for new-to-you puzzles.

The Puzzle Exchange is located in our front foyer.

The library is currently displaying rocks, minerals, and fossils from the collection of LaFayette residents Dale and Greg Shinneman.

At right in photo above, a fossil fish that swam in the Green River Formation around 50 million years ago.  In the center of the photo below, a Megaloden tooth.  The ancient shark could have eaten a modern killer whale in five bites!
