Spend summer at the Library

We're halfway through the summer -- phew! hard to believe -- but there's still plenty of time for some great summer reading!  Both libraries provide bestsellers, mystery, large print, science fiction/fantasy and romance. Or book a life with biographies and memoirs. Travel to a different time and place with history and travel essays, learn a new craft or start a new hobby.

Traveling? Why not check out one of our eReaders, each one is loaded with about 2 dozen titles, a mix of fiction and non-fiction. Or load up on our audiobooks on CD or via OverDrive or OneClick for ebooks.

How about music? That's the problem with life -- there's no background music!  So line up some music CDs and give your life a little zing.

Your options are endless at the Library!
