Video Games are Here!

We have recently added several games for the PS4, Wii U and XBox One to the Young Adult collection, and we've got several Nintendo Switch games pre-ordered! Games may be borrowed for free for one week. We would like to expand our gaming collection, so please consider donating games you don't play any more to the library.

Forgotten Our Stuff?

We have manga, anime, fiction, paperbacks, an online list of new books, databases, Internet access, wireless, audiobooks, videos, and all kinds of nonfiction and reference materials. If you're looking for something fun to do or read, or if you just need to study, we're the place - we've got it all!
