We’ve got lots of new books waiting to be checked out!

Binge Worthy Series @ Your Library!



Strengths Highlight: Confidence!

Our strengths activity this month was all about confidence! Strengths leaders lined the stage with a bag full of "dares"! Mayans would pull a dare out of the bag and complete the task to earn a treat!

It takes a lot of confidence to do something silly on stage!


"You are confident in yourself and your abilities. You take risks because you know you can do it. Because you are confident, you are able to do things that others may not want to try. Knowing that you are a unique and special person in the world gives you the power to be who you are."



Food Distribution Date Change!!!

Our monthly food distribution will take place on Wednesday, December 14 from 1:00-3:00 pm. Please remember to bring your bags and our distribution is Walk up only!
