Our programs are focused to various ages from infants to adults. Literature, music, arts. You can probably find something that interests you here.
Local artists exhibit their work in the library on a monthly rotating basis. If you are interested in exhibiting your work, call the library at 899-4962. A lockable display case is available, as well as wall space for hanging photos, paintings, etc.
The art in July will continue the exhibit of Morgan Quimbly’s photography. Morgan aims to capture the beauty and wonder of the natural world in order to share it with others. She specializes in photographing birds and loves the challenge of learning their behaviors and personalities in order to get the perfect shot.
