  • Purchase materials that keep us up to date on the latest trends in literature, contemporary research, and current affairs
  • Support dynamic programming and services for all ages, including the Summer and Winter Reading Programs, community outreach, and Bookmobile service
  • Provide free digital resources including audio and eBooks, magazines and newspapers, movies, music, Linked-In Learning, and more
