The main library and all branches will be closed Monday, September 5th, to celebrate Labor Day! We wish all a fun and safe holiday.

The new monthly program at the main library, Family Bingo”, was a HUGE hit with lots of prizes won! This is a free, family fun event. The next one is scheduled for September 26th @ 4 pm.   

There are so many different programs going on at all of our branches with different dates and times, we encourage our patrons to visit the Facebook page of their favorite library to learn about the unique programs being offered!

We’d like the folks who use Overdrive to know that the App is being discontinued and being replaced by “Libby”. Readers are encouraged to switch to “Libby “now. If you have questions, please give us a call.

Early Notice: The main library will host the annual Lawyers in Libraries again!

In conjunction with National Celebrate Pro Bono Week, the two attorneys who are scheduled for our library for one-on one 15 minute sessions to answer civil legal questions and provide further resources are Alex Chapman on October 26th from 11 am to 1 pm and Allison Vidrine on October 27th from 11 am to 1 pm. There will be a sign-up sheet available early in October.
