Congratulations to Executive Director Jennifer Drinka for being awarded the 2024 ILA Librarian of the Year award!

You may have noticed our website has become a “Little Library Website” with many pages pared down to just the essentials. Recently, we put much effort into our physical renovation, so now we turn our attention to our virtual presence. As we audit our digitally accessible resources, we will put the same attention to detail and focused planning into renovating those as we did our building. Once the core site is completed, in time, new virtual branches will grow from its roots using the same principles so we can be assured that ALL of our patrons can enjoy ALL of our services and resources.
