We can’t possibly buy every book that might be of interest to our patrons, but we can extend the library shelves out into the world by using interlibrary loan services to provide what you want to read. If you don’t see it here, just ask. We will be happy to send a request for your book through the interlibrary loan system which connects thousands of libraries nationwide. This is a free service that can help you get the materials you want and need quickly . . . just ask.
We have three computers that have access to the Internet. Patrons may use 30-minutes per day, plus more if nobody is waiting.

The library also offers wireless access for laptop users. Our wireless access to the public free of charge. The network is on twenty-four hours a day, making the service available inside during open hours and accessible outside the building after hours. Patrons are asked to review the Internet Use Policy available in the library before using the network.
