40th Anniversary Celebrations are underway!

(Check out the 40th Anniversary page for more details about when events will be taking place.)

Not too long ago library patrons from far and wide gathered round a long table in the lobby to create their very own button. The first of many celebratory endeavors, the button making project was a huge success, with almost everyone leaving with a smile on their face and a colorful, fun, and unique button in their pocket!

Need Homework Help?

This section has been around for as long as the library itself, but with new collections and a helpful sign, it’s easier to find and access for all those in need of assistance. It can be found just behind the Young Adult section next to the Classics. If you still have trouble follow the signs posted at the end of the columns.

 It ain’t no book, but here’s the NOOK!

Each Nook is filled to the brim with fabulous young adult novels for your reading enjoyment! By checking out the Nook containing your book you will also have several others at your finger tips! To top it off it has a convenient feature that allows you to look up words you don’t understand, creating an easier reading experience. 

And lastly I’d like to note its remarkably convenient size, considering the number of books it holds, and can be all yours for an entire three weeks!
