Library members can enjoy:
The library has a large collection of books, DVDs, music CDs, audiobooks, video games and magazines. You can borrow and enjoy them at home.
We also have books in languages other than English (including a large Chinese collection) and lots of ESL materials.
Check out our DVD dispenser! It's a robot full of the latest movie and video game releases.
You can book a time to use the computers for free. Each person can have up to two hours a day.
Our computers have Internet access, Microsoft Office and other software. We also have kids' computers with educational games. Printing is available at a cost of 20 cents per page. See more information...
