Host of the Year: You

Are you wondering how to keep your houseguests entertained this holiday season? May we offer our large selection of coffee table books on just about every topic you can imagine. We've placed a sampling on our round wall by the front door and there are many more upstairs.

While you're looking at our books, you might also enjoy our display of holiday cookbooks and crafts, and beyond, our offerings of DVD's. Let us help you be the host with the most.

New Books @ Your Library

Thank you for the recent flattering comments on the new book display area. It’s gratifying for us to know we’re providing useful displays.

We will continue to separate our new books but the way we display them is changing. In addition to the “pyramid” display, new books will be displayed on the end of the fiction shelving as well. This is part of an ongoing project that includes adding more computers and a separate reader’s advisory section on the back of the fiction shelves. Thank you for your patience as we complete this project.
