The teen page is where you'll find upcoming events for teens and recommended book titles from Library staff. If you want to recommend a book, send us the name and author and we'll post if for you. If you would like to contribute a review about a book you just read let Ellen know. We want to know what everyone is reading!

No more fines @ the Library

Sturm Memorial Library is now fine free for all materials. We know this will make life easier for our patrons. Keep in mind, however, that materials still have to come back and if materials are a month overdue a bill will be sent to you via mail or email. If you return the item, the bill disappears and no fines will be put on your account.
