Lego Donations Needed: The Library would like to start a Lego Club and is looking for donations of new or “gently-used” Legos to get started. Please bring any donations to the library during open hours.
Museum Passes Available: As the weather gets chillier, take advantage of one of the twelve museum passes available at the library that allow you visit free of charge or for a discounted price.

Beyond The Basics - Home Decorating: Get some tips and tricks for affordable holiday decorating on Wed., October 24 beginning at 6:30 p.m. with certified home decorator, re-designer and stager Kerri Durkee of Functional Home Designs.
