Food for Fines runs November 1st-30th! One non-perishable (non-expired) can or boxed item equals $1 of Library fines (not for billed/lost/damaged items). Donated food items will be used to stock our Little Free Pantry! Overflow food will be brought to our local food pantry. A maximum of 10 can/box items per account please. Sorry, but we don't have a way to credit your account for future fines, but we can offer you that fuzzy feeling you get from helping others.

Help your young child be a reading star and sign up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program.  It's never too early to start reading!  This free program runs year round, so you can read at your own pace.  Children receive a prize for each 100 books you share together!  Sign up for the program at the Youth Services desk.

For $10, you can get a two year membership to the Friends and will get these benefits at each sale. The Friends of the Library are critical to the Library because they help to purchase new materials and grant funds to all those great programs you are enjoying at the library.
