Welcome to the Town Hall Library!

Caution, icy conditions   The entry ramp on the front (north) side of the library is prone to icing up and not safe for use at this time.  Those with accessibility needs should use the back door (south) side of the building.  That sidewalk is heated and does not get icy.
