Books and Reading

Information to help you find a book to read.

Spend some time browsing the links on the left to find suggestions for a good book to read.  We enjoy reading just as much as you do and we'd love to talk to you about books. Stop into the library to see our displays of featured books, or talk to a librarian about what you're reading, or to get ideas on what to read next.

Be sure to let us know when you find the "Must Read!" book. We can then suggest it to other folk wanting something to read, and you  might even inspire a book party!

Attached is a listing of the periodicals the Library subscribes to.  Newest on the list is the WALL STREET JOURNAL. Stop in for a brief read of the periodical of your choice.

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)
