Does my child need a library card to take books out of the library?

Yes, your child must have a library card to take books out of the library. If he/she does not have one, please fill out an application at the front desk before the start of storyhour. The first day of storyhour is quite hectic and it is a great help to desk staff if cards are issued in advance. Your child’s library card will be kept at the front desk for the entirety of the program.

 

Can I suggest events for the library?

Yes, just fill out our survey and let us know.
