What’s new at the Library?

These items were recently added to the collection. Many new Knovel E-books have been added. In addition, we recently received a donation of a number of Star Trek books. Check them out.

We have a “Fan Page” on Facebook and are looking for friends.

And of course at the time of year we are getting ready for Nostalgia Night. This will be our 16th year. Seems like only yesterday that we were wondering if anyone would come… Hope to see you again this year, and remember tickets make great stocking stuffers!
