Meet you @ the Library!

Highlights

What's New...


Reduction in Library Hours

Please note that the library now opens 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.
