A New Look for the New Year!

A New Look for the New Year!

Happy New Year! To kick off 2019, we’re turning the page and starting a new chapter with a brand new website! In 2018, we sent out a survey to get your input on our website – what worked well, what needed help, and what to throw out altogether. You spoke – we listened!  We took your feedback to heart, and have been diligently working to bring you a new and improved website with a fresh, modern look and easy navigation throughout. Have a look around!

Some great things about our new website….

  • Mobile and tablet-friendly (fully-responsive) – We want to ensure you have the best experience possible, and that includes your phone and tablets!
  • Reflect the values and personality of the library – We’ve added more images of our library; we take pride in our community and want to showcase our patrons and presenters on our website.
