It’s not too late….…

There is still time to join the tween advisory board. On May 9, at 4 p.m., the TAB will meet with librarian Debbie Sternklar to discuss fall programming. If you’re a tween interested in helping plan for the future, please stop by the library and let your voice be heard. 

Services available

Now that spring is upon us, don’t forget the many services your local library has available for your use. Museum passes, nooks, audiobooks and playaways are just a few items that may help you enjoy your summer funtime even more. Stop by your local library and look around. You may be surprised at the changes since your last visit.
