UPCOMING LIBRARY PROGRAMS!

An Introduction to American Indian Music, Thursday, May 26, 6 pm

American Indian music has survived centuries of suppression. Musician Craig Harris (who has appeared at the Library with his "Drum Away the Blues" program), conjures an aural tapestry in which pow-wow drums and end-blown woodwinds resound alongside symphonic strains, jazz, reggae, country music and the blues.

All ages welcome, and no registration required nor advance knowledge of 3D Printing. The class takes approximately 40 minutes, and a certificate is issued following completion.

Library Funding at Risk

State funding cuts have put our incredible, statewide, resource sharing system at risk and this impacts all of us. It is at the very heart of what we do to make sure that you have access to the same information and resources as everyone else in the state, no matter where you live or how much money you make. This year's Legislative Agenda will help you tell our Representative and Senator that story. Please let lyour legislators know how important this is to you. Library funding is only .07% of the state budget. As the website says, "Libraries don't need BIG money, they need ENOUGH money."
