April news & updates
National Library Week
April 7-13, 2019 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing roles of libraries, librarians, and library workers. This year, the same week is also National Volunteer Week . To our teens helping at Youth & Young Adult programs, our volunteers delivering library materials to homebound patrons, and our book sale sorters, we could not provide the same services without your help.

Thank you to our volunteers, staff, and library supporters!
