The core foundation of the Library is to share and reuse materials; to enhance your personal learning experience without taxing your wallet or creating waste. National Library Week is April 12th through the 18th and if you get your library card, renew your library card, or bring a friend in to sign-up for their library card during National Library Week- we’ll give you your very own “go green” reusable bag to tote away your materials.
