Charger Cords Available for Checkout

Have you ever been hanging out at the Library and found your phone or tablet was out of juice? And then the panic sets in…

Don’t worry! You can now check out a charger cord from the Library.

With your library card, you can check out one of six Micro USB Cable Chargers (compatible with Android devices) or one of six Lightning Cable Chargers (compatible with iOS devices). They are limited to in-house use only, and only one per card. 

Just ask at the Circulation Desk.

We have five Study Rooms available for all of the above. In Adult Services we have two 4-person rooms and one 2-person room. In Kids & Teens we have one 4-person and one 8-person room available.  

Just bring your library card or photo/student ID with you and you can use our Study Rooms for two hours at a time, or call us to reserve a room up to two weeks in advance!

      

Leyden Township Holiday Food Drive

It's the beginning of the holiday season, and a popular time to help those less fortunate. Leyden Township is collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries for the holidays for residents in need.

Until the end of November, you can drop off your donations in the red bins sitting in the foyer of the Library. Thank you!
