About Us

The library emphasizes service to individualsBchildren, students, homemakers, workers, professionals, and senior citizens. Its materials collections reflect the local community=s interests and needs. Public library resources, services, and programs support four fundamental goals:

Education - To provide opportunity, guidance, and stimulation for personal growth through self-directed learning efforts; and, to supplement the resources of local schools and colleges;

Information - To provide individuals with timely and accurate, up-to-date information;

Leisure - To improve the quality of life by providing materials and activities for the productive use of leisure time;

Culture - To serve as a meeting place for cultural activities, and to promote participation in, enjoyment of, and appreciation for the arts through library-sponsored and co-sponsored programs.

These goals are essential service components, based upon the premise that public library service should be:

- Designed to meet the needs of the community served;

- Provided by competent library professionals;

- Housed in suitable quarters; and

- Based upon adequate collections of materials.

I always love to come here. Everyone is always so nice and there isn't any red tape necessary to utilize this public library which is greatly appreciated. Not to mention to print it's only $0.10 a page unlike the libraries in Charlotte. Love it here!
