Hello from River Valley District Library!

How are you all holding up? I for one am very glad that the weather has warmed up enough to let the kids in the backyard a bit more! Fingers crossed that the weather holds for a while. We here are all anxiously awaiting the time we can safely reopen to the public. The staff is utilizing this time to further our education through webinars and online learning. We wanted to share with you some of the free databases we offer at the library to help encourage our patrons to continue their education from home as well.

Check out the databases page at our website!
