Stay Sharp Kits

Stay Sharp Kits
We are now circulating Stay Sharp Kits, made especially for seniors with memory loss. These kits provide books, puzzles and other activities on a specific theme. These resources create a sense of achievement while improving mental speed and helping short-term memory. Kits are currently available on the topics of gardening and baseball. Ask to see kits at the upstairs service desk, or put a kit on hold through the library's catalog.

  Meeting Room Update 5/9/2023
The meeting room is not available to the public between August 1 and September 11.

The library will be collecting donations for the fall book sale during those dates and all donations will be kept in the meeting room. The sale will be September 7-9, and book sale cleanup will be Monday, September 11. The meeting room will reopen for public use on Tuesday, September 12.
