  • NEW at the Library
    The Library has many online resources for you to use from downloading a book or song to learning a language. Sometimes it may be overwhelming to try to learn which resources are most useful to YOU.

    The Library now has quick videos on how to get started on some of these resources. In most cases, there is a short introduction with additional videos on how to get started. Instructions on how to download books also include specific devices. We list these resources below with links to the  videos. You'll also see them on Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the videos. We hope they will help you!
