  • We have shared a lot of updates as the situation has evolved in town and in the world. We hope we have reached a lot of our patrons, but we know there are people who use the library who won't see our posts on Facebook, etc. Please call your neighbors, friends, and family who may have missed these updates, and who may benefit from our services and resources. Please encourage them to reach out to us with any questions at all and we will do our best to help!
  • We hope everyone in the community knows that Nesmith librarians are still here to support you, whether it's through exciting programs for all ages on our Event Calendar, grab bags of recommended reading selected by library staff, virtual browsing videos, or digital reading apps you can access with your library card.
