Thursday, November 26 we will be closed.
New Library Hours:
Have you heard? Our hours have changed! We're now open:
Monday - Friday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday: 1-5 p.m.
Cooking Our Books:
Thanks to advice from our friends at The Urbana Free Library, we are now treating returned items with heat and shortening the quarantine period by several days!
Because it takes some time to bring the ovens to temperature and maintain that temperature for the appropriate length of time, it will take several days for us to get caught up. Eventually, we expect to process items with two days after you return them.
To find out more information, please visit our Library website.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Howard, Director, at Director@MahometPublicLibrary.org.
Good news! You can now fill out a quickform to request picture books! Pick a category from the provided list, and a staff member will choose 5 books from that category off of our shelves and place them on hold for you!
2020 has not been the most relaxing year of our lives and now we face the most stressful time of any year - the holiday season. In addition to the stress that comes with long to-do lists and extra expenses, many of us face family conflicts at the holiday table or we’re affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder as the days get shorter and less sunny.
What if we could do things differently? What if we could find a way to reduce the stress and even enjoy the season?
Join us for a Zoom webinar with Rachel Kurtz of Kurtz Counseling, LLC.

Each Thursday, we'll feature a patron's recommendation on the Library's social media accounts!
