~~~  Monthly Events  ~~~

We have ongoing events for all ages every month! Several of our programs are designed to promote literacy and continuing education through reading programs, computer classes, and digital applications. Many of these programs are sponsored by our wonderful Friends of the Library (FOL) group. Visit our “Support Us” page to learn more about the FOL and other ways you can help your library.
Our goal is to provide access to information, resources, and services to everyone regardless of income levels or backgrounds. We also serve as a base for groups and organizations within the community.
