The deadline for big buddies to sign up is June 20; stop by the library or click here.

All are welcome to an opening reception and book signing for Fish Out of Water by local artist Tim Rand. Known for his large-scale portraits, Rand is showing something a little different this time.

The library will be closed on Friday, July 12 for a memorial service for former Director Lois Lemmer.
