We can help you print (from your computer or ours, or from your phone), as well as scan, fax, and photocopy. We even have a notary on staff. (Best to call for her availability in advance, as she's not in the building every day.)

The Library also offers two study/conference rooms, which are available by reservation and/or on a walk-in basis. Need to meet as a big group? We've got a large space for that, too, which is available by advance reservation. Email with questions or to book your date for that one!

Craft Room Fun: STEAM Saturdays for kids!
Did you know? The Library offers monthly Saturday STEM learning sessions for children: STEM Club for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade, and STEM Club Jr. for kids ages 3-5 (and their grown-ups). STEM/STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Each session will focus on a different topic and will include stories and hands-on experimentation. Kids might get a little messy, so dress accordingly!

STEM Saturdays resume in February, after a little January breather! For info about upcoming dates, times, and topics, and to register, go to
