As Blanchard has grown as a community, so too has the Blanchard Public Library, through various moves, additions of service and a constant push for service to the city’s residents.

To some it may seem like just yesterday when the library opened in its current location at 205 NE 10th St. But in fact, next spring will mark 10 years of library service at that address, which is the sixth physical location providing library service in Blanchard since 1961.

This library greatly increased the number of books and computers the library has in-house, as well as a meeting space that has been used by many local residents as well as library staff for program options for all ages.

Speaking of programs, the library has many activities scheduled throughout the year.

A favorite on Monday mornings is Family Story Time, offered at 10:30 a.m. It features songs, rhymes, flannel board fun, music and bubble time, as well as sensory activities and craft projects. 

September is bringing various teen programs for ages 12 to 17, including our monthly Teen Advisory Board on Sept. 19 and the beginning crocheting class “Chronicles of Yarnia,” which is presented for either teens or adults at 3:45 p.m. Sept. 19.

The monthly Book Belles adult book discussion group takes a look at a variety of topics in its meetings. And the Books, Beanies and Blankets group, which meets at 11:30 a.m. most Wednesday mornings, is a way for crochet enthusiasts to give back by participating in projects that then have been donated to sites such as Children’s Hospital and the Veterans Administration Hospital.
