As an alternative, we'd like to offer a couple ways for you to get lost in the virtual stacks.  Need a good book to read?  Spend...

What’s Going on at the Library? No doubt you have noticed all of the activity going on at the library. The new geothermal heating system installation for the library is underway. So, you might ask, what does this mean? I am not an engineer but a geothermal exchange system uses the heat from the earth to heat and cool the building and save us money in the long run.
