Library Director's Blog

It's hard to believe that winter is here when it's so warm out!  But if you are spending lots of time indoors right now, we have lots of new books and books on CD, DVDs and blu-rays for you to enjoy.  When winter boredom strikes, there are programs for all ages at the library - calligraphy, cooking and computer classes, book groups and children's story times.

We hope to see you soon.
