New & Notable

Summer Program


The TumbleBook Library is a collection of interactive animated talking storybooks for children. Children can read the text themselves or have the stories read to them. Stories are available in English, Spanish, French and Chinese. This is an excellent learning experience for young children.


The summer is just around the corner. We have an exciting set of summer programs. Have a look at the summer calendar of events.


New Microfilm Reader
The Library has a collection of local newspapers dating back some 50 years. Using this resource has just gotten much easier: we recently replaced our very old microfilm reader with a new state of the art unit.

The new reader uses a computer interface and is capable of precise cropping and printing. The reader will also save images as digital files so users can take material home on a USB drive.
