” The library is, with its careworn and temporary offerings, as lovely and as poignant a reminder of our actual human condition as the tides or a forest in fall” – Ben Dolnick

October is National Bake and Decorate Month, National Cookie Month and National Cookbook Month. Please stop by for a take home cooking craft project.

Library News

The Library is having a fundraiser! Please stop by and peruse these gorgeous bound volumes of National Geographic magazines. The oldest one is from 1918 and the most recent one is from 1974. There are two volumes for each year, January-June and July- December. They would make great gifts. Give someone a volume from a special year….birthday or anniversary. Great gift for history buffs! They have wonderful maps inside the volumes.

Suggested donation $5.00 per book.
