The Friends are also accepting donations for the Flood Recovery fund.  If you would like to make a donation toward the Flood Recovery, please include a note with your donation.

We made our move HOME!!

we are back in our space and ready

for visitors and patrons


We are so excited to be back in our space, the carpet is fresh as is the paint.  We cannot say "Thank You" enough to all the community members that have helped and support our staff, collection and patrons though this difficult time.  Your support, all the hugs and well wishes got the Librarians through some pretty rough spots- for that we are forever greatful!

Make sure to come and see us in the library-  check our our new lights and our new books :)
