New & Notable

We recently unveiled our millennials collection. These books are displayed on shelves near the circulation desk. The millennials collection focuses on titles of interest to adults who range in age from roughly 18 to 30.

If you are a member of this demographic we would love to hear what books interest you. To this end, we have set up an online suggestion form that you can use to recommend purchases.

We are pleased to announce that we now offer Transparent Language. Transparent language is used by libraries, schools, and the US military and government.

Transparent Language features a scientifically-proven methodology, the widest variety of high-quality learning material, and seamless integration of real-life language use by native speakers - all packaged together in an easy-to-use interface - And with 95+ languages to choose from, there is something for every language learner.


Wireless Printing from Laptops

We now offer patrons the ability to print in-house from a laptop. Instructions can be found here.
