  • Library is open until  8 pm today ( Friday)
  • Saturday – 10 am – 8 pm

The library is also Collecting pennies for peace (actually we’re happy to receive nickels, dimes, $10 bills,… you get the idea) . They’ll be jars at the Circulation and Reference Desk for a couple of weeks.  The money will go directly to help  Greg Mortensen’s nonprofit  build more schools in Afghanistan.

And remember the great Research Guide at for folks  who want more information.  And there are lots of copies of the book on reserve.
