Remember the library loans a variety of eReaders, and can guide you through using them.

If you are interested in volunteering as a library trustee, please sign up at the Town Office between January 23 and February 1. At least one position will be vacated this year. Trustees’ duties include adopting bylaws for the government of the library, preparing an annual budget for the support and maintenance of the library, expending moneys raised and appropriated by the town for library purposes, and appointing the librarian (director) and, in consultation with the librarian, all other employees of the library.
