Welcome to the new website

Content and navigation have been streamlined to make it easier to find what you need and to discover new ways to use the Library.  This new website reflects the spirit and look of the recent renovation to the first floor of the Library.

New features:

  • Library events and programs are featured prominently on the web site. 
  • A new calendar application makes it easy for users to set up a reminder of an event or e-mail details of the event to a friend.  
  •  Registration for some events may be done online. 
  •  Visitors to the web site may add their e-mail addresses to newsletter mailing lists that are of interest to them such as youth events or book clubs.   This e-mail feature includes an easy opt-out on each email received. 
  • A convenient sitemap link is available at the bottom of every page so you can easily skim the topics of every page of the website
  • A search box to search the catalog or the website is prominent on every page.

The Library's new web site will continue to provide access to the services and programs you have come to enjoy from the library.
