"Voyage to Book Island" has sailed away.  Thank You for all the Fun this Summer!



The Youth Services Department has much to offer. Come and visit us and discover a diverse collection of videos,  recorded books, magazines, and of course, books!  We have computers equipped with educational software, games and the internet.  We offer a variety of programs, and other fun activities. 
The Youth Services Department has also compiled a list of Internet links geared toward children. The list contains educational sites as well as entertainment sites. We also have Internet links geared for both homework help and  fun.
