Unless otherwise noted, all of our programs are generously funded by the Friends of the Library, Inc.

Due to the uptick in COVID cases, all programming will temporarily take place virtually.  The Library Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the case count and will re-evaluate this decision on a continual basis.

In observance of Martin Luther King Day, the Library will be closed on Mon., Jan. 17, 2022. The Library will re-open on Tues., Jan. 18 at 10:00 a.m. 

Concerned about Covid?:  If you would like to enjoy Library items but are concerned about coming into the building, partake of our Curbside service.  Call the Main desk and we will bring your items down to the back entrance.  Not sure what to read next? We also offer “Book Bundles” for kids and tweens and “Grab and Go“ bags for our adult patrons. You don’t even to leave the comfort of your own home to download/stream a huge collection of e-books, e-audio books, movies, television shows, music, and even comic books.
