OMG Josh is the King of wacky stories. For years he has been entertaining audiences with his own personal blend of magic, juggling, comedy, circus skills and of course silly storytelling. Children will get to construct the direction of the zany story he performs! Like a real life Mad-lib the audience picks the props, costumes, locations and plotline! This will be a hilarious, choose-your-own adventure show not to be missed!

Need a test proctored?  Call the Galena Library at 417-357-6410 and or email  

The Library provides proctoring services free of charge.

The Library will meet the proctoring requirements of the testing institution wherever possible; however, the Library cannot provide direct in-room supervision of the student during the test.

Most proctoring services can be provided at any branch during regular Library hours. Patrons who must use a Library computer for an online test must inform staff it the test takes over 2 hours.

Library staff must receive the following information before a test is sent to a branch for proctoring: student name, name of institution, phone number or email of student.

Tests can be received or returned through the mail, by email or by fax. Printing, Faxing and postage will be charged to the student or institution for such services. The Library can also receive tests from delivery services such as Fed Ex or UPS. Since the Library is not a pickup site for these delivery services, tests cannot be returned in this manner.

It is the student's responsibility to follow up with the educational institution, to ascertain that the completed test was received there. The Library will not keep copies of test materials unless specifically asked to do so by an institution.

The Stone County Library is ready to help you when you are homebound and cannot get to a library branch. This free service will send the books you want directly to your door. Just fill out the application and reader’s profile to help us select the best items possible.

Wireless Internet access is available free of charge at all Library branches 24/7.

If you have a Wi-Fi enabled device, bring it to the Library for use anywhere in our comfortable, quiet surroundings and enjoy the convenience of having our expert staff and other research materials a step away. There's no library card required, no password, no fee, no time limit, and no wait for a Library computer station to come available!

If the library is closed, you may surf the web in our parking lot.
