During the week of February 26 to March 5, the library catalog will undergo necessary maintenance and upgrading. During this time, all patrons must bring their library cards with them to the library in order to check out materials. In addition, no holds can be placed or processed during that week. Read more about Library Catalog Maintenance.

The Mayme Keith Children's Area gives kids their own space in the library, filled with books, DVDs, and many other things.  Youth Services staff are always on hand to lend assistance.  There are meeting and tutor rooms, a computers just for kids, a large program room, a garden, and so much more.

During the week, there are special programs for pre-schoolers and home-schoolers.

And our staff travels to area schools and daycares to share our books throughout the community.
