Join the Family Feud!

After much consideration, we have decided to “retire” our Jeopardy tournament after 15 years – BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! There’s a new game in town! Let’s play Family Feud! Our game will begin on Tuesday, September 5 at 6 PM in the library auditorium.

Teams will consist of 4 players (you don’t really have to be all family). Each night teams will play 2 games and the highest score for the night will advance. Sign up begins August 1. We will play just like the TV show with the exception of “Fast Money”; we’d really like to do that, but well, you know – points instead of dollars, and of course bragging rights!

Sign up your family/friends and join in the fun.

Student Library Cards Only $5

It’s time to register for a student borrower card for the 2017-18 school year. Peabody Public Library offers special discounted library cards to students in the WCCS district who are not in our service area to provide access to educational materials needed for school work. More information here.

Jigsaw Puzzle Exchange

Take a puzzle—Leave a Puzzle

Many people have enjoyed working on the puzzles in the adult department. Now you can take one home, too! Only one puzzle per person at a time, please. Puzzles are on top of the Reference Shelf (by the globe and the big trophy). Enjoy this new service!

Library Loot

Breaking News!

There’s a new program at Peabody Public Library that allows you to collect “Library Loot” to use for library services and drawings.

  • This program is for ages 13 to adult.
  • You may collect one Loot Dollar when you visit us at the Farmer’s Market, Tri-Lakes mobile library, technology sessions, library programs and more.
  • You may use up to 3 Loot dollars to reduce fines (not applicable to damaged or lost items), you may use 1 Loot dollar to pay for copies or a fax, or you may use 1 one Loot dollar per entry for our quarterly drawing of a Loot Basket (really cool stuff!)

When does this start? Right now! So be on the lookout for programs, outside the library events or sometimes just being in the library at the right time.
