Welcome Alumni!

The library will be open special hours for reminiscing! 
Our regular hours Friday and Saturday are 9-1 and we will stay open from 1-5 both days for self-guided nostalgia tours (but no library business from 1-5).

Front Entrance Closed

The front entrance of the library is closed while they repair the front steps. The side entrance, near Kent's Mary Patterson building, and the back entrance are still open. The book return has been moved to near the back entrance (facing the alley behind Cooper's Insurance). Sorry for the inconvenience.

Toddler Time Zoom

TODDLER TIME ZOOM  The target audience is children birth to 36 months old and a caregiver. Language is so important at this age. We will share the joys of language through a short virtual meeting.  Our digital experience will include nursery rhymes, songs and stories once weekly.

Covid-19

Coronavirus has been the subject of many recent news and social media reports. Your health and safety is important to us. We know that information is a key to good health and that sometimes reliable information is hard to find. That’s why we have taken the time to assemble a list of trusted sources to help you find dependable and up-to-date information from local, state, and national perspectives about the COVID-19 outbreak.
