Thanksgiving Closings


Library will be closing at 3 pm, Wednesday, November 25th 
and all day Thursday, November 26th.

Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Food for Fines - Collecting thru November 25



With the holidays approaching, the library would like to ask you
to assist us in helping the less fortunate in our community.

Any nonperishable food item you donate will go to a local food bank
AND will be considered as a $1 payment against any overdue fines
you may have.  If you don’t have fines, we will still take your donations
and get them to those who need them.

Donations will NOT count toward fees for lost or damaged materials.
