At the library


We have over 45,000 holdings in books, audiobooks and videos. New titles in each category are added every month–explore them in our "Lists" area.


Our library is organized into three main collections/areas: adult, young adult and juvenile. We have book, graphic novel, audiobook and video holdings in each collection.


We have a robust children's program headed by our Children's Librarian with programs for babies, toddlers, elementary and teen-age groups as well as activities for families. Among these are storytimes, playtimes, games, crafting and special presentations like wild animal shows and firetruck tours.
