You can do it all @ your Public Library!

Your public library is here to provide you, our customer, with basic free access to current, high-demand, high-interest books, DVDs, music CDs, books on tape, magazines and newspapers. Your library system consists of the main library, four branch libraries and the bookmobile.

We try to create a welcoming environment with a friendly, competent staff and strive to introduce children and adults to the joys and rewards of reading and using the public library.

Our "Literacy Bell Program" which partners with school systems in our county, allows kindergarten and first grade students to “ring the literacy bell” in celebration of reading their first book.

We especially try to support students of all learning levels and ages with their formal and informal course of study and self-improvement.
We offer storytime programs for preschool children, reading clubs for elementary students, teens and adults.

We have a free online Prep testing called "Learning Express Library" that is available, along with other databases.

We partner with the OSHER Institute to offer classes for those 55 and over. New classes are offered every spring and fall. Come by and pick up a schedule.

We have a bookstore run by the Friends of the Library, located in the basement of the main library. It is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.until 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We offer free Internet service at all of our locations, including Wireless. The Burnside and Shopville branches have community rooms available upon request.
