A message from our Friends (of the Library, that is)!

'Tis the season... for giving books!

Looking for great gifts for your family and friends? Put on your holiday sweater and bring your gift list to our special December Book Sale. This month, we're celebrating the season with displays of holiday titles, including beautiful children's books, CDs, DVDs, and puzzles.
