Inspiring and supporting lifelong learning and the love of reading

On the Waterfront

Do you have children's or teen books that are no longer used at your house? The library would appreciate your donation of books that are in like new condition for our summer reading program, be it picture books, beginning readers, or chapter books. We strive to give out a book prize every other week to our participants, so your donation would go into the hands of an eager summer reader. Books may be dropped off at either location.

Watch for information coming in May about our exciting summer reading program for children, teens, and adults!
