Music in the Stacks

Local musician Steve Mattoon will play classical guitar melodies at the library during the 3 o’clock hour on Thursday, December 20.
Drop by for a few minutes while picking up your holds or stay for the hour and enjoy this low-key afternoon performance in the stacks.

Book Club Kits Are Here!

Let us help support your book club by providing multiple copies of books and discussion questions!

We have collected a wide-range of discussable books in great condition and put them in a canvas bag available for book clubs to borrow. We’ve included a folder with discussion questions and information about the author to encourage conversation among club members.

There will be at least 5 copies of the book in each kit, but most have kits have 10 book copies. Some kits will include an audiobook too! There are currently 11 kits to choose from and we plan to add more.
