Online ebooks and audiobooks:
Our library provides two free services for digital materials. Both are available as apps for your devices or can be accessed online. 

  • Hoopla. No wait times! That's right. Movies, tv series, ebooks and audiobooks available immediately. You get six(6) checkouts per month. 
  • Libby/Overdrive: If you are using a device, download the Libby app. If you're using a computer, you'll use Overdrive. This is the same end result, just a different way of using it. You can have ten items checked out at a time. 

 

Programming:
Enjoy programs on our YouTube channel! Listen to storytimes, go on a virtual farm visit, try some crafts for adults (and all ages), watch cooking demonstrations and more!  We are exploring ways to provide further programming soon.
