Construction Update: The Road to Reopening

Day by day we see progress being made on our construction project.  Just the other day we peeked in and saw flooring being laid in the renovated Reading Room and windows going up in our new Teen Room.

Some books had to be boxed up and taken off of shelves for work to be done.  We’ve been working during the evenings once construction is done for the day to put those books back where they belong and get them back into circulation!

Banned Books Week 2020

Celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week, September 27th–October 3rd!

Banned Books Week is an annual event that spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools.

This year’s Banned Books Week theme is “Censorship is a Dead End. Find Your Freedom to Read.” Censorship limits exploration and creates barriers to access information. The path toward the freedom to read starts at the library.
