"Why buy a book when you can join a library?"
Inter-library Loan: If we do not have the book you want we will try to borrow it from
another library or may consider buying it and adding to our collection.
Our library has become a vibrant community center. We have space
for community groups, space for tutoring, and
a host of educational and entertaining programs for children, teens and
adults. We want to work with the community to build on our
successes and to ensure that our library is an engaging and welcoming place to
meet. Feel free to make any suggestions to our Library Director to improve our services.
