The library has always been here for you and your family, providing materials for entertainment and learning, free programs to stimulate imaginations of all ages, and information to help you do everything from repair your own car to open your own business.

Now, more than ever, the library’s 25 branches are providing you with information and tools to help you flourish in these difficult economic times.

We help you save money with do-it-yourself books, financial planning classes and subscriptions to popular and specialized newspapers and magazines. Forget spending a small fortune to go to the movies. Many branches show films geared to different age groups, and our extensive DVD collection allows you to see the latest blockbuster as well as catch up on the classics.

Your libraries offer free programs for children and teens including storytimes, movies, arts and crafts, recreational games, music, science and much more. Throughout the year, you and your family can enjoy plays, concerts, author visits, cultural heritage programs and art gallery exhibits, all without spending a dime.

Public computers and free Wi-Fi connectivity give you the opportunity to create a resume, check email, look for a job and apply for one without the cost of an Internet connection. Free computer classes for adults and seniors may include Internet 101, Resume Writing or an introduction to the wealth of information on the library’s web site.  

Using the web site you can find a Medicare prescription plan, take a practice exam, learn how to fix a sink or speak another language. Kids and teens can find free homework help, either at the library or through the special homework help web pages. Owners of small businesses and entrepreneurs will find legal forms, business plans and other information to help make dreams become reality.  

We are proud to be a part of this vibrant community and are committed to providing the welcoming spaces, helpful staff and the items you want and need during this challenging time and well into the future. Come visit us soon!

 

Sincerely,

Jeanne Goodrich
