We are revamping our website as well as our children's
programming. Please see our
Facebook page or

Circulation Period - Deadlines
All children's materials can be checked out for three weeks. Books and magazines
may be returned in the book drop when the library is closed. All audio materials
should be returned to the desk and NOT placed in the book-drop.
The library allows teachers for public, private or home schools to apply for a
teacher card. Applications for the card are to be made at the upstairs desk, and
must be renewed annually. With this card, a teacher can check out up to 25
materials (excluding videos) with a due date up to a maximum of 2 months.
Limitations on the number of books checked out on a single subject applies;
especially, if that subject is in high demand. Please try to return your
materials as soon as you are finished using them in the classroom- other patrons
may be waiting for them. Please inform the Children's department of assignments
the whole class will be doing - we could pull some material on the subject and
have it on reserve for children to use at the library.
- Materials on a Teacher Card cannot be renewed since the teacher can set his/her
own due date.
- Overdue fines are charged.
- The card holder is responsible for lost and damaged materials.
