Bread Class the 3rd Wednesday of month for now. Crafts on most holidays for the kids. Summer reading for everyone.
We have 6 computers for public use and 1 laptop for adult use. We offer fax and printing for a small fee.
We are a Fine Free library. We do not charge late fees. Patrons are only charged if they damage or lose library items.

This library also had Halloween Masks that can be checked out. No other library has that.

We had our front sidewalk fixed and added a new back patio thanks to a generous donation
