News & Announcements:


Did you know there is a Solar Eclipse coming in August?! The library will host an eclipse viewing party on the field next to our parking lot on Monday, August 21 starting at 2:00 PM. We have special protective glasses from the Space Science Institute so we can view the eclipse SAFELY (learn more about eclipse safety here).  If you want to learn more about eclipses and why they happen, read on to find details about our pre-eclipse educational program.

Librarian in Lockup! Miss Jess will be going behind bars on September 20th to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Help us raise her “bail money” by donating online at

Kids and adults in our community are living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away everyday freedoms like walking, talking, hugging and even breathing.

By donating to her “bail,” you can help Miss Jess raise money to bring strength and hope to the individuals and families in our community living with these life-threatening diseases.
