Top 10 for Adults

Take a look at some of the most popular items for adults checked out in 2020.

If you're looking for your next Zoom book club title or are having a hard time choosing from your to-read list, try one of these! One thing is clear - if you really love James Patterson, you're not alone because our patrons certainly do, too! And when it comes to nonfiction, politics was the name of the game.

One Community Postcard Project

We asked four local artists to create a work of art based on our four themes of family, community, isolation and resilience. We’ve turned their beautiful work into postcards for you to take and share as part of our One Community Postcard Project. Pick up a pre-stamped postcard at any Library location, add your own message and send it along to someone who may need a word of encouragement, love or support.

Banned Books Week 2020

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read. The books recognized each year have all been targeted for removal or restriction in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.

We've compiled a list below of some of our librarians' favorite banned books. Is one of your favorites included? Maybe you'll find something to add to your To Read pile! 

Self-Checks Now Available

Looking for a way to maintain social distancing while checking out items? Or a way to skip the line? You’ll love our new self-checks - available now!

Self-checks will be available in the check out area at our Central Library, as well as in the Youth and Reference areas, and at our branches. And they are exactly what they sound like: an easy way for you to check out items yourself.

Tech Bytes

Middle school students can get one-on-one lessons in coding through the Library's Tech Bytes program. This technology-based program helps kids get ready for high school with the tech knowledge and experience needed to succeed. We've brought in two teens from the area to work as mentors.
