Library closed – Monday, February 2

I don’t think the groundhog will be able to get out of his house today to tell us about Spring! groundhog

The library is closed once again due to the weather conditions. Here is another opportunity for you to try out all of the online services available.

You can browse the catalog and order books, download audiobooks and ebooks, and now you can download magazines! All from the comfort of home! See the Overdrive link to the right to download materials. In addition, children can access Tumble Books and play games and read books online.

I hope you get a chance to check out these great services.
