Locked in the Library - SATURDAY NIGHT!

SATURDAY night at 7:00 p.m. the library will be hopping. This is the 7th year the brave souls in the Children's Department have had an annual sleep over. Parents and children stake their claim to a spot in the library then join in the activities planned by the staff. Breakfast is over by 8:00 a.m. so the library can be ready for our day time patrons at 10:00.

This year there will be 195 children and parents at the sleepover.


Artist - Robert Giovino

Stop by the library and look at Robert Giovino's oil paintings. When you walk into our community room you will feel like you are at the seashore with his colorful pastel seascapes.
