We are pleased to announce that Kansas author Rosie Bosse will be joining us on Saturday, March 23, for a meet-and-greet the author plus book signing event.

For our digital patrons, you may have noticed some difficulties checking out items on Hoopla the past few months. We have attempted to remedy this by sending more funds to the company. However, there have been some changes taking place with budgets and it will cost our library more to continue funding this digital resource. We know many of you enjoy and appreciate this platform for your digital lending, and you might become discouraged when you receive the message stating to try again after midnight. Each checkout does cost us, so please be patient. We encourage the use of Libby app and the cloudLibrary as well. All you need for Libby is your local library card account number and pin. To access cloudLibrary, you will need a state library card. Your librarians are glad to help you with any of these.
