We've been introducing some changes in Your Library. It's no secret that we're out of our space in our current building.   In order to better curate your library experience, you'll see us clearing, cleaning and rearranging a bit. Our collection, services and programs will continue to meet your needs as we make these adjustments.   If you have any questions about our updates, please reach out to us. We'd love to hear from you!

We're also constantly curating the Library to fit YOU!  What does that mean?
