 A Gift for our Special Collections….

 Did you know that we have Fun Item Rentals at the library where patrons can borrow items instead of spending time and money purchasing them? We have cake pans, jewelry making kits, hiking backpacks, family game night packs, and much more. Do you have an idea for an item that could enhance our collection?
