Come and check out our NEW Literacy Kits!

Since we are currently unable to meet together to have story time, we have created literacy kits that you can bring home! We have worked to develop an activity that you and your children can explore together.

You can browse the binder in our children’s section which contains photos and a description of each kit. You can also review the full list by clicking this link: Literacy Kit

Kits are available to take out for 2 weeks at a time. They will be isolated for 72hrs and sanitized before going back out again.

We will be continuing to develop more kits for various ages, including adults, so please feel free to share with us any ideas or interests you might wish to see explored.



We are now open!

Come and say hello to us here at the library.

We have lots of new books to share and smiles beneath our masks!
