The library will be closed today, 3/15/2017

The library will be closed today, 3/15/2017, to allow time for the good work of road clearing to continue. It was a tough decision, and we look forward to being back tomorrow. Remember, no additional fines are accrued on days that the library closes.


Note to Field Goods subscribers, owing to the fact that we are closed today, pick up is not available. Since Field Goods is
self-managing and provides top notch customer service, I am sure that they will be in touch with any further information. Thanks so much!

btw: made the b-e-s-t cold weather slaw with ingredients in the the last delivery.

The library is closed today, 3/14/2017 due to Winter Storm Stella!

Scheduling note:

Due to the upcoming storm prediction, the development day for staff is being rescheduled for March 22, 2017 – on which day the library will open at 1 pm.
So – the Library will open at 10 am on March 15th, and story hour will run at its usual time of 10:30. (Barring potential weather related closings!)
Tech Trouble Tuesdays will not run on the 15th.
We apologize for any confusion and thank you for your patience!

Introducing Libby!

Love reading eBooks? Is the OverDrive app just a bit too convoluted for you? Wish there was a simpler way to check out your favorite books from the comfort of your home?

Try the Libby app, another way to access OverDrive’s vast library of eBooks and audiobooks!

From their webpage:

“Libby is designed to make borrowing and enjoying eBooks and audiobooks from your public library easier than ever, through:

  • Intuitive navigation
  • A streamlined first-time user experience
  • A simplified borrowing and downloading process
  • One unified bookshelf that automatically displays all of your loans and holds from all of your libraries
  • And more!

You can use Libby in place of, or in addition to, the OverDrive app. Of course, you can also continue to use the OverDrive app exclusively if you’d rather not try Libby at this time.”

You can download this free app on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Have any questions? Ask anyone at the desk.
