  • Library Update!
    Closings -
    Monday, January 15 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    In the case of the Library closing due to inclement weather, closing will be announced on the web site, Facebook, and if possible on the phone. Always check the web site or call the Library in advance (if you hear a message machine, that means we are closed).

    Catch me if you can!
    We have some hot titles set aside on the New Books table - all newly released! They cannot be put on hold so if you are lucky enough to see one of these hot titles, please grab it! These books are always on the move! As you check your books out, just take a quick peek to see what is there!

    And you can alway place a hold on an item. See these easy directions!

    As always, if you have any questions, please ask the staff! We are here to help you!

  • 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 tutorials 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. You'll  see them on the Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the tutorials. We hope they will help you!

    We will list here tutorial additions on using social media programs:
