The library has programing year round for all ages. We try to plan something for everyone. We have story time for the little ones [Wednesday @ 10 AM] Craft Club for the adults [Friday @ 1PM]. Crafts on most holidays for the kids, and any time we find something for them to make. 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.

At the end of 2022 the library owned;
2065 DVD’s and TV shows
17 Audio books

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

Hoopla is also Free with a Library Card

Keep an eye on the library Facebook page for up and coming events.

The library was able to receive a grant this year, this helped replace one of the older computer.

We were able to have a few fundraisers this year, they did pretty good also, they help keep the library doors open.

2023 we plan on looking and filing for more grants.
Having our Spring & Christmas basket raffles. Taco dinner also in the spring.
Working the Fair stand and helping with supplies, for our share of the profits
