What's New At Your Library

Art Again: Art Sale
Join us Saturday, April 11th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM for our "Art Again" art sale, hosted by the Friends of the Library. The event will also feature light refreshments and prize drawings for gift baskets donated by local businesses, as well as silent auctions.

Now through March 30th, the Friends organization is accepting donations of new or good-quality used artwork. Donations are being accepted at the circulation desk on the main floor of the library. Funds raised will go towards additional books, technology, furniture, and programs to benefit our community.
