The book drop is moving! We are happy to announce that the Library will have a true drive-thru book drop this spring. It will be located next to the ballot drop box in the Oak St. parking lot. This new location will allow users to drive by and drop their books off without having to pull into a parking spot. The Library would like to thank everyone that has made the dream of a drive-thru book drop a reality!
It is that time of year again. You need to mail your tax returns by Monday April 16. Many of the commonly needed tax forms are available just outside the library doors in the lobby. If you can not find the form you are looking for, please ask us to print one out at the Library desk. Library staff can help you find the forms you ask for, but are not able to give you tax advice or assistance.

On the third Thursday of every month at 7 p.m., the library presents an evening storytime with puppets and finger plays for children 2-6 years old. April's theme is Bears, so wear your PJ's and bring your teddy!
National Library Week
Libraries have always been places for education, self-help and lifelong learning. Today, they're at the forefront of the information age, providing computers, Internet access, databases and more.
At your library, you have access to nearly everything in print and online. You also get something else - something that a bookstore doesn't have. You get the knowledge and expertise of a librarian to help you find what you're looking for. What could be better?
April 15-21st is National Library Week, so stop by and see why people are coming to the library.
