In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn, scrappy desert dweller Rey, and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Skywalker. They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire. Rated PG-13.

Big Improvements and Small Disruptions

We have officially begun reconfiguring our stacks to make room for the Collaboratory, a 2,400-square-foot digital media, coworking, and maker space opening this summer. In order to move the shelves, we will be putting our audiovisual materials into storage from Friday, April 8th through Wednesday, April 13th. These collections include DVDs, books on CD, playaways, and music CDs. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we improve your library.

Children's Room Update

Thank you to everyone in our community for your patience and understanding while our Preschool and Media Areas have been closed. Our contractor is working on repairs to the walls and ceiling in the Preschool Area. We hope that this work is completed soon and that the new carpet is installed by the middle of April. We are also making progress on ordering copies of the Picture Books and Beginning Readers that were destroyed. While our spaces will be re-opened soon, the process of ordering and re-building the book collection will be ongoing and may take some time. Thank you for your continued patience.

We'd like to thank everyone who has donated to the Library in the past several weeks. Your generous gifts will help us return our Children's Room to its former glory. Your kindness and caring have reminded us how much our community values the Library and all that we offer to young children and families.
