Beat the Winter Blues with Books
The Library closes at 5:00 PM Thursdays December 24 and December 31 and is closed December 25, 26, and 27, and January 1. But there's still plenty for both members and nonmembers to do on our website.
For the most access, join the Library - all levels of membership are currently available including our e-membership. Due to a matching gift, your Annual Fund donation doubles its impact through December 31!
If you're still looking for the perfect holiday gifts, how about Library memberships (starting at $100) - or one of our sturdy, stylish tote bags?
