Meet you @ the Library!


What's New...

Reduction in Library Hours

Starting on January 24th, 2018, the library will reduce its hours open to the public by 3 hours per week, opening Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. instead of 10:00 a.m. With increased traffic, a new interlibrary loan service, and the popularity of new programs, staff struggle to keep up with the workload. The reduction in hours will not mean a reduction in staff hours.
