Magazines & Newspapers Available @ the Library

The library uses two catalogs for a complete description of all of the books, movies and music that we lend. The boxes below allow quick searching of each catalog; the full catalog sites can be accessed by clicking the hyperlinked name.

Computer Classes

These classes are designed for beginning to intermediate computer users. Because these classes are held in our Meeting Room (not the computer lab), you are encouraged to bring your own laptop if you would like to practice during class.
No registration is necessary for fall classes, but winter classes (January, February & March) require registration. Click the Read More link to view our current schedule.
