Other Ways to Support Your Library

  • Participate in programs. In addition to scheduled programs, the library generally has "at your own pace" in-library programs each week. Ask at the desk to see what we have!

  • Fill out our surveys. Did you know the library has a feedback survey on our website? We encourage suggestions of any type - whether you have a purchase request or a program suggestion, we would like to hear about it. Occasionally we will also send out specific feedback surveys.
