Programs for Every Grade

We regret that reductions to the library budget mean that the library must cut back services to schools. 

If you have concerns about the library's diminished budget, please express your support for library funding to your elected officials.  We hope to restore these services when funding allows.

 The following services are still available as staffing permits.  Please contact your local branch for details.
