You are so creative!!!


We will be offering socially distanced/outside programming for both youth and teens. All youth programs will take place offsite this fall.

The youth services department is open for browsing and resources, though our play area remains closed for the foreseeable future.

All of our programs in 2021 will be held outdoors or other locations (not at the library), due to the library expansion construction project.

The library does not have programming on days that the schools are closed due to inclement weather. Stay safe.
