Teachers' Resources

If you're an elementary or preschool teacher, or a home school teacher for these levels, you can get a special teacher loan library card to check out things for classroom use. Also, our children's department has book boxes, which contain 30 copies of the same title and sometimes the book on CD, for your classes. We can put children's books on class reserve so all your students will have access to what they need for special assignments or research projects.  read more »

What's new? Glad you asked...

Our news page lists the various ways you can keep up with us on the web.

Change in Renewing On the Web

When you're renewing your items in our "my account" feature on the web, make sure you're completing the process. It's easy to miss the new screen that was added in a recent update of the software: Now, after you select items to renew and click "renew selected," you get a confirmation screen that says "The following item(s) will be renewed, would you like to proceed?" and you have to click "yes." After that, you'll get the final screen, where you should check the "status" column to see if your items were able to be renewed.

Energy Savings Continue

In May we used 39% less energy than we did in May, 2009. The energy-saving measures in our renovation project, which was funded by donations, are really saving taxpayer money.

Local Favorites

What are your neighbors reading? Our lists of most popular titles are based on checkouts at our library, not on some national sales figures, and we have lots of categories, including mystery, nonfiction, and graphic novels, as well as movies, CDs, and titles for kids and teens.
