What's New At Your Library

Summer Volunteers Needed
Are you a people person looking to give back to the community this summer? Then the library might be the right fit for you! We're looking for adult and teen volunteers to help with organizing shelves, prepping supplies, assisting with programs, and more. For more information, please contact the Reference Desk or check out the application form here. Help make a difference this summer!

New Fiction Book Genres
Do you love adventurous science fiction and fantasy titles? What about sweeping romances? Or maybe uplifting Christian titles are your favorite? Well, stop by the library and check out our three genre fiction sections. The majority of our fiction can still be found around the outer wall of the main floor, but it is now followed by a collection of romance fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and Christian fiction. Check out something new today!

New Sitting Area
With the completion of the window, we're happy to offer a new sitting area to enjoy while you're visiting the library. So stop by, relax with a good book, and take in the view.
