Your Local Public Library

There are some wonderful activities and learning opportunities going on at the Library. On September 30th we will be hosting a fabulous 3D-Art Event at the Makerspace. This event provides the chance for kids to create some beautiful art and explore their imaginations. We would love to have you join us for this fantastic day.

Create, Learn, & Explore

Kids love to learn and create! Why not do both together? the library is a wonderful place to learn new things. These idea-centers are also the perfect setting for children to explore. At the makerspace you can make cool stuff, get creative, and have a ton of fun! Imagine the infinite possibilities.
