Doll tea, a great event

On Wednesday, July 20, the Old Capitol Doll Club of Iowa came to the Solon Public Library with lots of dolls.

Adult computer classes

Computer classes starting August 8 have filled. Another class will be starting October 10. Interested adults may add their name to the waiting list for the next class by calling the library at 624-2678.

It’s not too hot to explore the library website

Take a look at www.solon.lib.ia.us , the Solon Library website. Learn about the celebration that is coming in August to recognize 10 years in our beautiful building.

It’s not too hot to watch a movie from the library

There are nearly 600 DVDs to choose from in the ever-expanding DVD collection at the library. There is no charge to check out a DVD and the check-out period is three weeks, the same as for books. Since the DVD collection is a popular spot in the library, patrons are asked to return the DVD as soon as they have viewed it so others may enjoy it, too. At the present time, the budget allows us to only purchase one copy of each item.
