Meetings are held at 9:30 am, every two months, on the third Thursday, the following being in July, in the branch’s multi-purpose room. Membership is open to all residents of the community for $10 per year for active members or $25 per year for patron/corporate members who wish to support the library without active involvement. There is also a $100 lifetime subscription available.
