Miss Contino will be reading from her new book The Shipwrecks of Curry County. This program will be held on Saturday, September 23, at 2:00 pm

Thanks to a very generous donation, Curry Public Library has received two first person view racing drone kits. Over the next few months, staff will be developing a program designed for high school students to learn how to build and pilot these drones. When our new techlab/makerspace is completed, we will be able to fabricate our own parts and build new and different designs. More news to come on this awesome opportunity for Gold Beach teens!
