We're celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week (FPW) at the library!

Fire Prevention Week is October 9th-15th.  To celebrate, we will be giving out a limited number of copies of Mrs. Meyer Is on Fire! from Dan Gutman’s “My Weirdest School” book series starting that week (first-come, first-served).

We will have FPW activities available for kids all week in our Children's Area.  Story Time this week will feature a special FPW book!  Story Time happens on Tuesdays at 10:30 and 4:30.

Medicare 101

What does Medicare cover? How much can I expect to pay?  When and where should I apply?  What if I’m still working?

September is Library Card Sign-up Month.  Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite to spread the word about the availability of library cards.
