You have access to MORE

The library connects users to over one million library items through the MORE shared system. Today registering for a library card means more than just great books.  DVDs, music CDS, video games, magazines, audio books, e-books and magazines and juvenile braille books can also be checked out with your library card.  Your card also provides online access to databases such as Ancestry Library Edition, Heritage Quest, Auto Repair Source, and Novelist Plus.

Computer Policy

  • Users must be registered with a library card.
  • Individuals or families may sign up for 30-minute sessions, which can be renewed if no one is waiting.
