Watch the news @ your library
You may have noticed we have been busy installing electrical and cabling in various parts of the library. Soon we will be providing two tv's that will be set to news channels with closed captioning (no sound) so that you can keep up with world news! One will be housed in our 1st floor bistro area and the other will be on the second floor in our reading area. In the future we may also air things like elections, the olympics, and other programs of interest.
