Digital Reading Q&A

We want to help you master digital reading! Digital reading is a great option for book lovers; it’s impossible to incur a fine and materials are available 24/7. Our new Digital Reading Q & A session will be offered on the first Friday of each month (you can find us upstairs in Room 219). Drop by between 3:00-4:00 pm and we will help you use your library card to access free digital books, audiobooks, magazines, and kids books.

If you’ve had problems in the past using Overdrive, Freading, Flipster or Tumblebooks, bring your device and let us help you troubleshoot.

LibraryCon 2017

Calling all comic-lovers! It’s time for our 2nd annual LibraryCon.

You will find visiting authors, artists & vendors; comic based games, crafts & cosplay; author panels & presentations. All ages are welcome to attend!

Library Card Sign-Up Month

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held in September to mark the  beginning of the school year. It is when the American Library Association and        libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and      lifelong learning.

The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life, in addition to offering a variety of programs to stimulate an interest in reading and learning. This September, let’s make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a free library card.
