Banned Books Week 2016

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.  Throughout the week we celebrate libraries as a place where people can freely access materials of all sorts, even books that have been banned or challenged at certain times and places.  This year we're reading Night by Elie Wiesel—pick up a free copy at the main desk and join us for a discussion of the book on Thursday, September 29th, at 5:30.

After School @ the Library

As kids head back to school, remember that the library is a great place for them to spend their after school hours.  It’s an ideal location for studying and doing homework, and we have programs to keep kids engaged Monday–Thursday at 4:00:

Lego League: Every Monday, kids of all ages use their imaginations to make Lego creations!

Family Movie Night: On Tuesdays we watch a fun movie that’s appropriate for all ages.

Pokémon League: Local youth gather to play the card game Pokémon on Wednesdays.
