Did you know. . .

. . .that throughout the year, we have averaged approximately 650 visits per week? Why do people come? They come for:
Books
Magazines
Newspapers
Audio books
Movies
Video games
Internet
Copies
Faxing
Research
Computer classes
Used books from the Friends
Meetings
Programs
Tours
Sometimes they just need a map, or they want to look at the paintings hanging throughout the library. Occasionally they drop in to say hi or get out of the rain.
Your library is about more than books (although they are still our favorite things!). It's a world in itself, and it's populated by all of you.

Audio Books at the Library

The library has just added 14 new Louis L'Amour, two Clive Cussler, two Nicholas Sparks and one Dean Koontz audio books to the collection. These audio books on CD were donated by Kathy Harris. The audio book collection has both CDs and tapes, although audio tapes are being phased out slowly. If you have a car trip to make, an exercise routine, just want to shut out the noise, come take a look at the audio book collection at the Arthur Johnson Memorial Library
