When you register you will receive a log to track all 1000 books. When you've completed 100 books, bring your log into the library for a sticker. We have special prizes at milestones including:
200 Books-Finger Puppet 400 Books: Set of Number Magnets 600 Books: Plush Animal Friend

The Village of Coal Valley has installed signage that designates the section of the parking lot from the south end to the village entrance for library patron use only.
Parents who are waiting to pick up children after school or attending school functions should refrain from using these spaces. The Coal Valley Police Department is authorized to warn and ticket those who violate this policy.
Please help us keep these parking spaces available for our patrons, especially those who are elderly or have difficulty walking. Remember, you are welcome to park here if you are using the library but those picking up children should find alternate parking....Jeffrey Stafford, Library Director.
