I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We need to keep everyone safe and off these slippery roads. We should be open tomorrow! Don’t forget you can order books from home (see search catalog to the right of this posting) and you can download ebooks, audiobooks, and even some movies (limited selection) through Overdrive. And now magazines are being offered – see details below. Kids can use Tumble Books to read picture books and play games. All from the comfort of home!! I hope you get a chance to try it out!
