The Library is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday & Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Ongoing Programs and Events

Dominos Thursdays from 1 to 3

All adults are welcome to participate in the weekly dominos game.  The group meets in the Glass Office/Reference Room just inside the East entrance of the Library.

There is no fee or library card required to join the game. The group supplies their own prize for the winner. The group also brings snacks to share after the game.

Fiber Arts Circle

The Needles, Hooks, and Books Fiber Arts Circle for all skill levels will break for the summer and meet again in September. This group is for all who enjoy or want to learn knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidery, or any fiber art. Bring a finished or current project or book to show off, or start a new project with the library’s supplies. Join us in the glass office for conversation and begin or continue a project. The group will meet from 3:30 to 5:30. There is no registration, charge, or library card required.

Maker Stations

Ask at the circulation desk for one of four projects to create: paper airplanes, a DNA model, a sturdy bridge, or cell phone speakers. In the tub the circulation clerk provides is step by step instructions and everything needed to complete the project. Keep the project but turn in the tub and contents to a circulation clerk when finished. No fee or library card is required to participate. These are available during normal business hours for all ages. Ask at the circulation desk. Soon the choices will change to: rubber band planets, dazzling kaleidoscope, balloon rocket car, and a dancing snake.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The goal is to read 1000 books to a child before they enter Kindergarten. Children who have not yet entered Kindergarten are eligible to participate in this program with their caregiver. Caregivers may stop by the circulation desk to register and receive a program folder to record books. Children will receive incentives at each 100 book milestone (stickers, tote bags, buttons).
