Sunlight to read by

Spring is sprouting with crocuses and evening sunlight. It's a great time to shake of the winter cobwebs and get outdoors.  

Take a walk to the library to check out a book, and use the natural light to read a little longer. You can browse our full catalog from anywhere. If you'll be out getting some exercise, try downloading an audiobook to keep you going. You can even stream music from Hoopla to add a little rhythm to your day. If you're suffering from cabin fever, the library is a great place to visit, no matter the weather. Pick up a Library Travelers Passport and collect stamps in our Around the World Community Read!  Attend one of our great free events for kids, teens or adults, including Makers Day weekend March 24-25.
