News and Upcoming Events
Feburary 2023 Calendar for Adults, Kids & Teens now available!
Pick up your "Book Dash order starting Feburary 1st
As a way to get citizens to "taste" different books & genres from a literary menu, we are hosting "BookDASH".  Intended for adults ages 18+, this is a quick and easy to choose a book based on a "receipt" attached to each bag. Instead of seeing the cover of the book you have selected, much like eating with your eyes, our BOOKDASH is blind.  In addition to a library book, each "take out" bag includes library "condiments".  The main poiont is to introduce people in a fun and curious way to new books they may not have discovered or chosed to read otherwise.
