Now Featuring

New Bin Collections: Our character books have moved and, in their place, we have created collections of early learning concept books, Spanish storybooks and more. Perfect for little fingers to browse.

After-School: With school back in session we are looking forward to a library full of families and students. We will start our weekly programming in October with gaming on Tuesdays and spooky snacks on Wednesdays! We welcome all students in the library after school (please note that children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult). We do encourage parents and caregivers to monitor the whereabouts and behaviors of their children.

Coming for a visit? Make sure to look at our After School Rules and Unattended Child Policy.
