Library is open for 30 minute sessions. No appointment required.

The Library announces its summer experience YOU ARE HERE. This summer is about celebrating all the ways we can be together in spirit even while we are apart. This summer’s challenge focuses on self-care, mindfulness, community, and getting active.

We have created two programs: one for kids and families and one for teens and adults. Each program has a series of activities organized by badge themes. Each badge will encourage you to complete different activities exploring mindfulness, community, reading, and much more.

While this summer will not be a normal summer, we hope it can still be a summer full of interesting experiences and learning opportunities for everyone.
