Spooky Story Stroll

This will be both an organized event on the next two Wednesdays before Halloween at 6 p.m. (Registration required) AND a drop-in stroll that you and your kids can follow, through the colorful new picture book of the Addams Family, whenever it is set up on the lawn. Bring along some sticks or snap your fingers as you make your way through the Addams Family theme song in a picture book story stroll on the lawn of the library!




Library is open for limited access

The library building is now open to 15 patrons at a time, limited browsing but good seating. Face masks must be worn and social distancing observed. Hours: 10 – 2 p.m. Monday thru Saturday, and, in addition, on Wednesday evenings we will be open from 4 – 8 p.m.



Curbside Services will continue

Patrons can place holds on WB items through the Sails catalog and order books by phone. Pickup services 10 – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday, 10 – 2 p.m. on Saturday. Order “book bundles” from the menu above for children, teens, and adults that are customized to your taste and interests. Color & BW printing and Faxing available.


Family Trivia Night

Although we have had to temporarily go on a hiatus with our popular online programs due to staffing needs for curbside pickup , we encourage you to access these fun programs at your convenience.



The F.A.R. Program returns

Dearly loved by the Adult Special Needs community, Ms. Michelle and Ms. Gail return by bringing a developmentally appropriate story, song, movement and craft online program to the public.



Gail’s Online Programs – the videos !

Our intrepid infant and toddler librarian, Gail McCarthy, brings her songs and books to the home viewing audience. She offers Baby Sing and Play to infants and very little ones and also, The Little Book Club, for toddlers who love books but also need movement and interaction.
