We are hard at work adding books, games, puzzles everyday to the new library website but we do not want you to have to wait for something you may be looking for. We have uploaded some images of our shelves that have items that may or MAY NOT be on our library website yet. If you see something you are interested in checking out, please feel free to email your local librarian (see emails below) to request that item and if we still have it in our inventory, we will gladly check the item out to your student and schedule a time for you to pick it up . This will be on a first come first serve basis. So the item may have already been checked out when you request it. Please note the location of the library below the picture and pick the library in your immediate area or shipping charges may apply. Thanks again for your patience.
