We also offer many services including children's programming, public access computers, a colour printer/copier, faxing, scanning, a meeting room, home-bound service, and inter-library loans.

The library is governed by a municipally appointed volunteer board and supported by a volunteer group of Friends.

Update on the OverDrive & Libby apps

Attention, OverDrive app users! OverDrive is discontinuing the legacy OverDrive app in early 2023 and transitioning users to the Libby app. Libby is OverDrive’s newer app for browsing and enjoying digital content from our library.

It’s time to give Libby a try! All your loans, holds, and wish list items will be waiting for you in Libby when you add your library card.

Libby also comes with new features we know you’ll love, like:

  • Tags to categorize books however you’d like—you can even sync your OverDrive wish list into a tag!
  • A central bookshelf for all loans and holds
  • Customizable notifications for ready holds, new magazine issues [include if your library offers magazines], and more
  • Compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Sonos speakers
  • Extra learning and entertainment resources
  • Easy access to OverDrive support staff
