The Doldrums

   Okay, the holidays are over, the relatives are safely back home, and it’s not time for the Super Bowl just quite yet.  Now what is there to do? It’s cold and dreary outside.  Start using YOUR library! We are open seven days a week until the end of April.  In fact, unless you don’t have a library card and need to come here to get one, you don’t even have to come to the library at all!  You can access movies, magazines, e-books, audio books, and music just by clicking a few buttons on a device at home in your pajamas!  How about becoming more knowledgeable about a particular topic?  Click on the Great Courses and select from such a variety of subjects.  Peruse our digital offerings and put aside the winter doldrums!
