Library Sign up Month

Did you know that with your library card, you can check out books, magazines, DVDs and even CDs? You also have access to our collection of E-books and E-magazines! We also have free Wi-Fi and computers for you to use. We also have a Seed library, which means you can get up to 5 packets of seeds for free.

To sign up for a library card, all need is your Driver’s license/ID with your current address and you can sign up today!

Don’t forget that we have Story Time for the little ones every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Studies show that children, who are read to in the home and who use the library, perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

Hope to see you soon!
