Recycling:

Dear Friends of the Library—We are now recycling used/empty and new/unused printer cartridges, cell phones/smartphones, old laptop computers, and tablets. Please remove user info, and passwords and unlock all phones and tablets before you donate. Computer hard drives will be cleaned of all personal information by CGRP. Your library makes a profit on the sales of these items. Please include AC adapters and cords when possible. Just drop the items in our collection box. Thank you for helping us recycle!

Seed Library:

Our seed library is a free resource to grow your own food! Take, Grow, and Eat! Learn to save seeds and exchange them as you grow.

We hope to build our collection to contain only organic and regionally adapted seeds. We have many books and classes on seed-saving and growing gardens. Check out the homesteaders club to learn more.

Long Arm Sewing Machine

The library has a long-arm sewing machine housed on our second floor. The machine is available for patron use by appointment. Demonstrations and training on the machine can be given upon request if you are interested in using the machine but have no prior experience.
