There are story times for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. School age children will be treated to magic shows, lego building skill, science activities. Teenagers, beside reading you will have your favorite games of craft every other Thursday or go to the movies with the library on Fridays. We also keep our senior patrons in mind. We will introduce you to Facebook to stay in touch with your family, eBooks and eAudio to enjoy a different way of reading.
