Spend some time browsing the links below to find suggestions for a good book to read.  We enjoy reading just as much as you do and we'd love to talk to you about books. Stop into the library to see our displays of featured books, or talk to a librarian about what you're reading, or to get ideas on what to read next.


    • Call or e-mail the library to place a hold on a book.

    • Tell us what you thought of a book by submitting a Book Talk form.

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)
