A New Name, A New Look!

Our regular visitors will notice that our web site name and presentation has changed. As our patronage grows, our web presence also needs to grow. Our new web name moves us from the ".us" domain to the ".org" domain. This choice was made to better align our library with others in our service area. We also decided that our new presence deserved a face lift. We are working to provide more  capability. for our patronage and better support our community.

Please make sure to bookmark our new address.
