type of bears live in our state, how dangerous they are, what
they eat, where you might find their dens, and when they leave
them. Also, find out what to do if you encounter a bear and
how to protect your livestock and pets.

Our new parking lot!

Construction is underway at 76 Main Street – we will be adding 6 additional parking spaces in our lot behind the library! This is very exciting news for all of you who have struggled to find a place to park when visiting us.

Thank you so much to the Friends of the Library who are making this possible! If you are not already a member, this would be a wonderful time to do so and support this wonderful group!

If you noticed several trucks and lots of activity at the library last Sunday – we were the setting for a local film shoot. Our lovely meeting room was used for a scene that may appear in the “The True Believers”. They also used the Country Store as a setting for some other parts of the film. Above is photo of some of the cast and crew.
