We have the newest, hottest titles from your favorite authors, series, or graphic novels from the moment they get released. Hit a reading rut? We’ll help you find just the right book (or 2 or 4 or 10) that fits your mood, interests, and sense of adventure. Try these booklists or chat with a librarian who is available 24/7.

There’s more than just books to discover at the library. Got a hankering to color? We have special coloring books that are just for you to color in. Yep. It’s true. We’ve also got a wide selection of video games as well as tons of CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks. Want it right now? Our eBooks, eAudiobooks, music streaming, and help with homework resources are just a click away.

Come visit any of our libraries where you will find spaces just for teens with comfy seating and lots to do. Join an afternoon Minecraft or Anime group, design using our 3D printers, discuss your favorite books in a book club, cook, craft, code, or just hang out. Find out more about what’s going on.

We can’t do all this without you. Let us know if you’re interested in sharing your skills and ideas and when you’re available. Librarians heart volunteers! Check out our volunteer page for more info.
