Movies

Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no movies shown at the library until further notice.

The Friends show a movie on the big screen once a month. This event is free and open to the public. Movies are shown in the Smart Community Room on the 4th Sunday of the month, beginning at 1:30 pm.

Book Sales

Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no Friends Book Sales at the library until further notice.

The Friends of the Libraries sponsor both a la carte (small) and large book sales.

  • Books A La Carte (smaller sale)
    • Friends of the Libraries Books a la Carte book sales take place on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Saturday of each month in the Library’s lobby from 10:00 am -12:00 pm. Lots of items for sale at VERY reasonable prices! Stop in and browse. We will have items of interest for everyone.
  • Grand Book Sale – every fall and spring
    • The Grand Book Sale is much larger than the Books A La Carte, and offers more books and different media, including magazines and movies.
