Thanks for the Great Response!!!

Thank you to everybody who took time to the fill out our planning survey.  The number of responses to the survey was much greater than we could have imagined and we appreciate being part of a community that feels like it has a voice in its library's operations.  We'll be looking into ways to integrate your suggestions into our planning process as it proceeds over the next few months.

More Time to Watch Movies!

We've made some changes to our policies regarding DVDs and are happy to announce that most of our DVDs now circulate for a week!  The newest feature film DVDs will continue to circulate for two days only but everything else, including older feature films that previously circulated for two days, will now circulate for a week.  All feature films, excepting foreign language and classic, still cost a dollar and we no longer offer 2 for 1 days.  We hope you enjoy this opportunity to hold on to your dvds for a few more days!
