New DVD Limit Change - Borrow More DVDs!
A borrower may now take 4 children's entertainment DVDs and 4 adult/teen entertainment DVDs for a total of 8 per library card. That's 4 from children's and any combination of 4 adult/teen DVDs. Drop by the library today and catch up on the latest movie releases!
Have You Been Looking for Books Where They Used to Be?
You may have noticed that we have rearranged things in our adult area. Reference materials have been interfiled with circulating books, so that you can find what you need in one place. Many of our reference books have been opened up for circulation, so that you can check them out and read them at your leisure. Older fiction has been cleaned up a bit and given more space, so there is less need to climb up to see the highest shelves, and fewer books down near the floor.
The signs on the ends of the shelves are being updated to help you find what you need, but please feel free to ask us for assistance! New fiction and non-fiction is still in the circulation lobby, in our Express collection. If you don't see a title you're looking for, please come to the reference desk - we'd be happy to reserve it for you.
