Using Your Library Is Easier Than Ever!

We’ve been working on making your library easier to use!  Before, if you checked out a book, a CD, and a DVD, they’d all be due back on different days.  To make this a little simpler, we changed our policies so all library materials check out for three weeks.  Everything checked out the same day is due back the same day.  Here are links to all our new policies.

Also, if you have library fines or fees, you can pay online using your credit or debit card.   Here are details about the Pay Online feature.

Winter Events
