When you think of the library, you think,"Books!" But the library has come to serve many of our community's needs, starting with books, but also...
DVDs, CDs, and audio books
Periodicals—print and online
Programming and exhibits
Computer access and upkeep
Internet service, database subscriptions
E-books and streaming access to movies, TV, and music
Meeting and study space

Without regular sustaining donors, the Library would not be able to confidently budget for the year ahead. Without endowed and annual funds financed by your neighbors and friends, our collection would lag behind the times.
