Our collections are constantly evolving to respond to the current interests and needs of our community. In recent years we have expanded our Library of Things collection to include more recreational items such as snowshoes and disc golf sets, STEAM Kits, and functional equipment such as Radon detectors and Light Therapy Lamps. We also have a growing collection of assistive tools for persons with print disabilities including DAISY Players, AAC Devices, and Autism Kits.

Our Goal.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 for the library’s collection annually. The first annual Books & Beyond campaign began May 15th 2023.

See our progress so far:

$12026 raised since May 15th!
