Fine Free November

We will be doing fine free November again this year. Fines will be forgiven for bringing in unexpired canned/non-perishable food items or personal items.

Happy Crayola Crayon Day!

The Crayon Initiative is a wonderful organization.  When you donate your unwanted or broken crayons, they will recycle them into new ones.  These new crayons are then donated to schools, hospitals, or art programs.  The library has a drop-box for your crayons!  Please think about dropping some crayons off.  To learn more about The Crayon Initiative, please look at their website: thecrayoninitiative.org.
