Our Bookstore is now open! Come browse and shop for some of the best and highest quality book titles at the best prices. We're open Monday to Saturday during library hours (depending on volunteer power). Come on in and find that book, magazine, DVD/VHS, greeting card, puzzle and/or Music CD you never knew you needed.
This is a bi-monthly family friendly event that can be shared with family and friends. Visit and dine with your family and friends and the hosting restaurant will make a generous donation to the Friends...FUN & SIMPLE!
Thank you to all who participated in our Lazy Dog Fundraiser in July! We'll see you at the Blackbear Diner in September.
