Take the Census Online

You should be receiving a packet with how to do the Census in the mail, but you can do it yourself via phone (tel:844-330-2020) or online at: https://www.2020census.gov/

It takes about 10 minutes to finish (max) and makes a huge difference in how funding is distributed to communities. Census responses mean funding for schools, roads, health care, emergency services, businesses, and more. Why wait? Take the census today!

A Message From the Library Board of Trustees

We are all trying to make sense of what is happening in our country and in our everyday lives. We live in interesting times: the Corona virus, masks, quarantining, Black Lives Matter demonstrations, politics and the forthcoming national election.  All these things have been coming at us fast.

Libraries provide spaces, both real and electronic, where we can educate ourselves on the issues, learn about people of different cultures, sexual orientation or life experience, seek inspiration and solace and online connect with government and news agencies. We have a range of possibilities on offer here, and the staff can direct you to help find what you’re looking for or suggest new paths to explore. We are open to suggestions to form new discussion groups, online or soon, we hope, in person, to exchange views on books and topical issues. Once again, the Library commits itself to providing our diverse community with the information resources we need.
