Art Print Collection
Several art prints are available for eight-week loan. Many are displayed throughout the building. Not all art work in the building can be checked out. Look for special labels on non-circulating items.
Audio Visual Equipment
Items such as an LCD projector (in-house only), overhead projector, slide projector and screen are available for public use. Equipment taken from the building requires a $25.00 deposit check and a valid borrower’s card. Equipment may also be used in the meeting rooms.
During the school year the bookmobile visits elementary schools in the library’s service area sharing collections for classrooms and providing a place for students to select their own books to check out.
A coin-operated copy machine is available near the Circulation/Information desk. Change is available at the desk. Cost is 15¢ per copy for black and white letter-sized copies, 30¢ for letter-sized color copies, more for larger sizes.

Library staff will select a group of materials suitable for children or families who are traveling. Requests must be received one week in advance of pick up date.
