Today’s library is more important than ever
and your library has become the heart of the community

People come for many reasons: group meeting place, job searching, learning and information, introducing children to reading, cost savings (borrow books, movies and magazines), school readiness, recreation, programs & workshops, self help materials (gardening, parenting, ‘fix it yourself ‘, art/hobby), a quiet spot to read or study, see original art by local artists, tax forms, photocopy and fax, e-mail, job search and more!
