TAG: Making Libraries Work for Teens!
TAG is about local teens talking to librarians and helping to decide which books, programs, and services they need.
It's about making your voices heard and your choices matter.
Refreshments are provided--all you have to do is bring your ideas, energy, and enthusiasm!
TAG: You're It!
This program is, clearly, just for teens.

Let's involve our pets on this summer reading journey.
Join us after the library closes at 6:30pm outside the main entrance on Oak Street. We will all walk to Huntley Park, while we enjoy each other's company. Maybe we can swap some pet jokes or stories.
At Huntley Park, there will be a refreshment and snack stand for us to quench our thirst and our pet's. Then we will take the jaunt back to the library.
It's a great way to socialize and get a good walk in that day. There is no signup necessary to this free event.
No rain date scheduled.
Construction will begin soon!
Join us in celebrating our groundbreaking occasion. We will start with recognition and appreciation followed by picture opportunities in the courtyard. There will be games, refreshments, and music by The Barb City Stompers. There will be limited parking due to this event, please plan accordingly if you plan to visit the library this day.
Third Street will be officially closed in order to make way for our new building. Temporary parking for patrons will be the two lots across the street from the construction site on Oak. The public city lots are also available and close to the library.
