Library Updates

  1. We are thrilled to be open to our community! We are simply happy to have you all back in the building. We missed you! Enjoy browsing the collection and using the computers, but please maintain 6 feet of distance between you and others and wear a mask when you are inside. Thanks!


    Looking for something to do? Check out our Events Calendar for online programming for adults. We also have take-home activity kits for preschool, elementary, teens and adults (while supplies last).


    Lastly, stop by the Friends of the Library Bookstore and the Common Grounds Café while you are here. Lela’s Place Bookstore is open Tuesday-Friday, 10am-4pm. Common Grounds Café operates 10am-2pm, with curbside service on Mondays and open in the lobby Tuesday-Friday.
