Services for Adults

The Adult Services section works hard to meet the needs of people from 18 years to senior citizens. Librarians and staff select the "best of the best' in books, and DVDs in English and Spanish for members of the community. We provide the newest DVD releases available anywhere, computers and WiFi for public use and, of course, great books and magazines in English and Spanish. Adult Services also organizes cultural events and outings as part of the library's services.
