Signs of our Time

Next time you come to the library you may notice additions to our signage--and to the language on our signage. We’ve added Spanish!

Did you know that we have a small Spanish fiction and non-fiction collection? We also offer a Spanish children’s story time, free Adult computer classes in Spanish, a discussion group for people wanting to practice speaking English, and periodic free Civics classes for citizenship candidates.
