In response to the COVID-19 situation in our community, the Library is currently only offering curbside service. We will re-evaluate by December 14.  We're using an abundance of caution now with the hope that we can let you back in the building soon.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community by promoting a love of learning through media as well as live programs to instruct, educate, inspire, delight and amuse.
