The library is being remodeled

The children’s area will be expanded out to the lobby and will be closed temporarily starting January 16, 2018. A collection of 8,000 children’s titles will be available near the lobby during the interim. We are unable to place holds on any children's materials. Programs will be limited during the project so storytimes will be held at other city buildings.
Visit for more information.
