Things You Should Know

  1. The library has computers on the basement level, on the first floor, and in two classrooms on the second floor.
  2. The library lends games--"Settlers of Catan," anyone? No? "Apples to Apples"? "Twister"? Chess? What about my personal favorite, "Yahtzee"?
  3. The library has TV shows and movies on DVD, and music on CDs.
  4. The library lends BICYCLES! (Ask about the Otterbike program.)
  5. The library lends digital cameras, laptops, flip video cameras--and more.

Using the Library

First things first--the library home page is a good place to start for any research you might be doing.

Check the library FAQs for answers to your questions about finding & checking out books.

Once you've checked out a book, you might want to renew it. You can do that online here.

Sign up to have your library reminders texted to your phone.

Take a virtual tour of the library before you visit in person.

Check the library hours before you visit the library. Chances are good we'll be open, but it doesn't hurt to check.
