Rosetta Stone is here

Learning a new language is just a click away. Rosetta Stone, the premier language learning program, is now available through our library. Whether you are interested in the most commonly spoken languages (English, Spanish and Madarin) or the less prominent (Swahili, Swedish and Tagalog), it is now available to you or your child. Learn from the comfort of your home or stop by the library to access this product. To get started, have your library card number handy and either visit the Help with your Homework page or click on the Research tab on the library homepage and locate Rosetta Stone.

The 2014 Youth Summer Reading Program has Begun!

Our Youth Summer Reading Program has officially begun! Stop by the library anytime to obtain your reading log. The program runs from June 14th to July 26th.

This summer, we're challenging you to read 600 minutes; that's only 20 minutes a day! For every 100 minutes you read (up to 600), you get a prize. Once you've read all 600 minutes, stop in to receive a free book, an invitation to a wacky science show, and an entry slip for our grand prize drawing, where you have a chance to win a Kindle Fire!

We hope to see you soon!
