In hard times, libraries are more important than ever. Human beings need what books give them better than any other medium. Since ancient nights around prehistoric campfires, we have needed myth. And heroes. And moral tales. And information about the world beyond the nearest mountains or oceans.

Patrons are to use the spaces on the far right next to the bamboo and the three closest spaces in front of the recycling bin. The other spaces are for residents of the Lofts Apartments. Street parking is available on Main Street. Additional parking for storytimes and special events is available at Bitting and 4th behind Key Bank. The Lofts have been generous with us by covering snow removal and parking lot lighting costs. Please do not park in the apartment spaces.
