Winter weather is coming up soon.  The Honey Brook Library follows the Twin Valley School District for closing and delays most of the time.  If we do decide to open, remember that we will also be delayed as we make the parking lot and sidewalks safe for you.  If in doubt, it is always best to call before you decide to visit us on a snowy/icy day.  You can also follow us on Facebook by clicking “like” on our Facebook page “Honey Brook Community Library”.  We post all closing and delays on Facebook.

Just a reminder that the Honey Brook Library will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
