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.

Volunteers Needed

POSTPONED-Become a trained Veteran Resource Coach or a Veteran Outreach Specialist

The Veterans Resource Center is looking for individuals who have a passion for giving back to those who have protected our freedom from World War II to present day.

We need dedicated individuals who can assist veterans and their families by providing them the resources and information, military or non-military related.   

We also need dedicated individuals who are willing to outreach to the community and talk about what the Veterans Resource Center provides.

Many veterans do not know that benefits have changed since they were discharged so eligibility requirements are different.  There are also new benefits that have come out since some vets were discharged that they may now quality for. We have a network of resources, that well-deserved veterans do not know about and we need dedicated people to help spread the word.
