After several months of work by library staff, Board members, and volunteers, the new website is up and running.
Please look around.
All of the old features of the earlier website are here and many new ones added. A key feature of this new site is that we will be able to make changes to the site very readily. This means that the website will be up to date and filled with current information about what is going on at the Library.
Watch this space on the Home page of the website for future announcements of how you can become involved in writing about and photographing library events and programs for inclusion on the website.
