AcornTV and eMagazines

RBDigital will no longer be available after May 18th. Many of the services offered through RBDigital will be found in the LIbby App. Unfortunately, AcornTV will no longer be offered. At this time they have decided to no longer offer library accounts and are focusing on personal consumer accounts.

New Circulation Desk!

The final piece to our library upgrade is now in place! While the library has been providing curbside service we have taken the opportunity to move collections, paint shelves, sand floors and clean, clean, clean. A new circulation desk was the centerpiece of our project and it is finally a reality.
