The library has a new website. Check us out at and see the new look.

It has been made easier for our patrons to get around and see Library News, Upcoming Events and access the online catalog, all on the home page.

There are Quick Links, also, to access your account where you can renew your books, check the status of books you have on hold, find out due dates of items you have checked out and even see if you have any late charges.

The library will be offering a seminar, Estate Planning, on Sept. 30 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room.
