Online Calendar and Registration

We have a new online calendar and registration tool that you can access on the right side of the blog under the picture of the library.  If you click on the orange calendar you will be able to see our calendar of events and register for programs that are coming up.  We've just started entering events so the calendar is pretty sparse at the moment.  You can also check for events at other local libraries as well.
