Here are the facts about having a library card:
What could be better? You have a great library and great library staff. You can come and stay as long as you like. Bring a friend, bring the kids, bring your favorite person, bring your lunch. Don’t keep this a secret. SPREAD the WORD FREELY!Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. And students can turn to the library for materials, programs, and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement.
Adult Summer Reading Club will accept entries through Saturday, September 5th. The grand-prize drawing (for a Kindle Fire!) will take place the week of September 6th.
Zinio is a collection of over 130 downloadable magazines you can read via the browser on your computer or using an App on your portable digital device.

Remember to take a look around when you are in the Library, as the exhibit is changed frequently. Our monthly newsletter features a profile of the artist and more information about the work. The paintings are for sale and on display in the area around our upstairs check-out desk. Thirty percent of sales will benefit the Library. If you are a local artist, please feel free to contact us. We may be exhibiting your work someday!
