What’s your favorite part of the Library District? Is it seeing the current bestsellers on the shelves? Is it the ability to download digital resources at no cost? Is it knowing that the staff are sincerely glad to see you walk through the door? Whatever the reason, we’re glad you are part of our community of learners and readers. Please take some time to look through the web page and explores all the resources and services we offer. If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

We have kicked off our Beanstack resource which allows you to participate in Reading Challenges during the summer of “Tails and Tales”. It’s been great to have kids logging their reading and participating in other challenge activities, like the animal scavenger hunts in Aurora and Dillsboro. We’ll also be using this to host a variety of reading activities throughout the year, so make sure you keep checking the site, even after the summer winds down.

The Library District is committed to serving all members of our community with dedication and kindness. We are truly here for you and want to provide the best possible information and resources to help you continue to thrive and learn. In addition to our print materials we offer a full range of digital resources, audiobooks, and DVDs. If you live within the Library District, all our collections are available to you at no charge! Please contact me if there is anything we can do for you or your organization.
