It was a dark and stormy night as I strolled up to the library. Actually… it was 7:30 in the morning, sunny and about 75 degrees. I saw the Kid waiting by the door, peering in through the glass. He was lookin’ more eager than a rodeo bull in his chute; I opened the door and he stampeded right in.
Before long I could see him wandering through the stacks. I could tell he wasn’t finding his quarry. He was more lost than a snake in a shoe store; not sure how he got there and not seeing anything he needed, and more than a little scared of being stepped on.
But before I could help him, the kid headed straight to our computer. I thought he had it all figured out, that’d he be fine, but I was wrong. The kid wasn’t sure what to do next. He was like an orangutan on a pipe organ; hitting all the keys but not making any music.
I motioned the Kid over. “What’re you looking for, Kid?” I ask him. He tells me his looking for Icefall by Matthew J. Kirby, a good read. So I take him to a computer, and together we track down the book. But there’s a problem…it’s already checked out!
It’s a week before I see the Kid again. He’s there first thing that morning. I reach behind me to the holding cart, and as I turn back around he’s already waiting. He grins like a Chesire Cat as I hand him his long sought book, and I remind him, that if he ever needs help again, all he has to do is ask. Case closed.

Computers or Chrome books
To use the internet you will need to check out a Library Computer Pass. To check one out give your ID to library staff and they will check the computer to see if your parents gave permission for you to use the internet.
Place the Computer Pass in the plastic holder at the top right corner of the computer monitor. When you are done using the computer return the Pass to circulation desk and pick up your ID
What are Holds? If you find a book you would like to read and it is checked out by someone else, you may place a Hold on the book so when it comes in it will be reserved for you.
You will need your ID card to check out a book or magazine. You may check out up to 10 books or magazines. The check out period for a book is 14 days and a magazine is 7 days.
Where to return your books
Return all books and magazine in the Book Return slot when you come in.
When looking at books and you decide you do not want the book, please place it on the small shelving cart by the circulation desk instead of placing them on the shelves. We will be happy to re-shelve them for you.
