Hopefully you've noticed our new Borrow page on the website.
We consolidated all of your library borrowing activities into one location. Whether you wanted to search the catalog, stream a movie, checkout an eBook, or download your favorite latest eMagazine issue, just bookmark www.tplibrary.org/borrow.
And in case you missed it, we now have a streaming movie service called Hoopla! But it's more than just movies, there's also all the latest music every week from major record labels, Audiobooks, Television shows, Comics, and eBooks. All for free, with your library card.

Music was in the air all summer long.

We applaud the over 500 adults and 2000 children and teens who signed up.

For the second year in a row, our patrons were fortunate to be able to connect with local businesses and take advantage of their special offers.

We sincerely thank these businesses for their continued support of our library and we encourage you to thank them when you visit their establishments.
