Library Closing Dates and Time Changes for the Holidays

There will be some changes in the library's hours for the upcoming holidays. While our physical location will be closed you can still return items in the book drop just to the left of our entrance. You can also - always - check out great books, movies and music through our eMedia catalogs.

We've got Overdrive that's great for audiobooks and ebooks, Oneclick for many of your musical needs and we even have streaming movies available through Kanopy. There's even some great additional offerings for kids through our Tumblebooks Library, some of them interactive.
