OUR NEW COMMUNITY ROOM IS COMPLETE!

Our new community room was completed in Spring 2019 and we are currently busy filling it with events and programs.  Please let us know if there’s something you’d like to see us host.

When the room isn’t in use for library business, it’s open during our regular hours and ready for you to come read, relax, study, or play one of our games.  If you haven’t seen YOUR new community room, come and check it out!
