Hello out there Mountain Top Community!

We are closely following the Federal, State, and County guidelines with their recommendations regarding re-opening. We will keep you informed and up to date as we know more.

We hope you are ok and staying positive.

Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks.
