We’re Grateful for You.

We’ll be closed Thursday, November 26 – Sunday, November 29 for the Thanksgiving Holiday, so pop in to get what you’ll need over the long weekend: books, CDs, DVDs or even a Verizon Jetpack hotspot or iPad, because we have those too! (See the blog post from 11/10).

Know that we are so grateful for you, our patrons. You’ve made difficult times better with your patience, good cheer, and appreciation. From all of us at the Library: we wish you a cozy and peaceful Thanksgiving.
