Get ready…new lib website coming 2nd wk of April

The library’s new BETA website is almost ready and will replace this website during the second full week of April 2017.

The new website is completely redesigned from the ground up, employs a “one-page” design, is much simpler in structure, and it works great on mobile devices. Want to try it out before the switch? You can preview the new website by clicking/tapping here. Don’t worry, we will keep updating the old website for a few months after the switch to the new website. To use the old website, you can just click/tap the “classic website” link found near the top of the new website.
