The library is proud to offer many types of programs for our community. Join us!


1000 Books Before Kindergarten:

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in just three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.

NOTE: This program is currently on hold. Please stay tuned for updates.


Author Events:

Author inquiries may be directed to the librarian at
