Due to Hurricane Sandy, the library has cancelled Babygarten, Terrific Tuesdays, and Halloween Cupcake Decorating, all scheduled for Tues., Oct. 30. We will reschedule the Halloween Cupcake Decorating program (Thanksgiving Cupcake Decorating, maybe?), details TBA. 

We'll try and keep you updated re: our status over the next few days. Please call or check our website before coming out to the library. Items due on days we cannot be open will not accrue fines.
