Summer Hours

Just a reminder that our Saturday summer hours began Saturday, July 6th. The library will be open on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm all summer long!

Upgrade Library Software

This is important to read!

This June, we’re making it easier to search the library catalog, find new materials, and improve your library experience.

We strongly encourage all patrons to read about the upgrade to avoid any surprises during this upgrade process.

Summer Reading

This year's Summer Reading theme is GECKO-ING to the Library this Summer! Summer Reading is an incentive program for patrons of all ages to keep up with reading during the summer. It is specifically focused on keeping kids reading while school is out of session. This year we are celebrating our love of reading al summer long while featuring our library lizard, Gus!
