Upcoming Events at the Library

We’re hoping to move in and open in November, but don’t have the official dates yet. Special programming for September and October is light because we don’t know what will happen with construction plans.  We’ll still have our regular programs running.

Weekly Story Time – Tuesday and Friday mornings at 11:15 am
Story Time provides an opportunity for children to explore the library, make new friends, listen to stories and try their hand at a variety of craft projects. Recommended for pre-school age and younger, but older children are welcome. Join us for a new story and craft each week!
