Did someone say September?
Personally, each and every one of us here agrees that we seemed to have slipped into a time vortex, and we are completely unable to account for the swiftness with which September is approaching. Professionally, however, we have been hard at work planning events, classes, concerts, and other programs here at the Library for you, beloved patrons. With the start of a new school year comes the potential for lots of learning, fun, and new beginnings, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Library for these events, and the many others listed on our website, soon! Registration is open for these events, so please call or go online to secure your place!
As always, please let us know what kinds of programs you would like to see offered here. We constantly try to meet the needs of the community, and your input is vital to ensuring we achieve that goal!
