We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and new year! We are back to our regularly scheduled hours and look forward to seeing our patrons. Is one of your resolutions to return past due books and movies? We don't charge late fees, so bring them back any time and we will be happy to see them, and you! If you can't make it here during open hours, please feel free to use the book drop box out front. And if you are feeling extra guilty, don't forget Guilt Dinosaur - he will happily eat your donations, which help support the library.
