This Week at the Library

For the week of September 26


Movies, Music, eBooks and more

We are excited to announce a new digital service that will allow you to watch movies, read books, listen to music and more.  You need to have a library card and internet access to use this new service.  Each card holder is able to borrow 3 items each month.  After 3 items have been checked out you will have to wait until the next month to borrow more.  Please check out the site - have your library card handy to make an account with Hoopla.


The library has been using pinterest for a long time to get ideas for our programs.  We have just started our own Pinterest page!  Click the  button at the top of our website - next to the Facebook button and follow us.  We will be adding boards and pins often - stop and take a look - let us know what you think!
