Library Lovers Month

February is Library Lovers Month, and we’re holding our annual Hearts Campaign to raise money for 2020’s Summer Learning program.

Summer Learning is the library’s most popular program for kids, teens, and adults.  Support from the community is what allows us to make Summer Learning such a fun program.

Throughout the month, you can buy a heart at the library’s main desk for $1, $5, or $10.  Your donation will go directly toward this year’s Summer Learning program.
