2016 Year in Review

As we look back on 2016, our library staff have had a lot to share with our online visitors this past year.

    We had really popular programs like our FOODIEspace at Tower Road, our second annual Author Series with local author Lauren Groff, and our Summer Reading program.  Other popular programs included our Teen Creative Writing Contest, our second annual Fandomonium event, and our Third Annual Elements of Inspiration Art Show.

    We increased our downloadable audiobook collection with OneClick and shared about our other online collections, including downloadable music with Freegal and our Ancestry resources.

    We connected with current events, remembering Prince and the growing popularity of PokemonGo.Image of "Pokemon GO" words
