2016 Tax Forms!


Come to the Library after school to relax and get all your homework done.


Learn the basics of how to use a computer, word processing or internet. Do you need to learn how to type a letter on the computer, use the internet to look something up, open an email account and use it, update your resume, or apply for that job online?  Computer tutoring sessions are one-on-one sessions, just you and the tutor, so learning can occur at your own pace. 

Please call for an appointment. Registration is required. If you miss your tutoring appointment without calling to notify us ahead of time, you will not be rescheduled.

"Why buy a book when you can join a library?"
Inter-library Loan: If we do not have the book you want we will try to borrow it from another library or may consider buying it and adding to our collection.

Our library has become a vibrant community center. We have space for community groups, space for tutoring, and a host of educational and entertaining programs for children, teens and adults. We want to work with the community to build on our successes and to ensure that our library is an engaging and welcoming place to meet. Feel free to make any suggestions to our Library Director to improve our services.

Is there something you'd like to know about or see as a program? Or better yet. Do you have a skill, talent, passion or creative know-how you'd like to share with the community?
