The robots are here

Want to play with a robot? Come play with one of the library’s new Sphero balls. Drive it, program it, turn it into a disco ball, smash it into a wall — it’s designed to do what you want it to do. An easy beginner entry into the world of robotics, the library’s robotic Sphero balls offer an experiential learning opportunity.

Get your music on

Want to learn to rock those first three guitar chords? Or the harmonica solo from that Dylan song? Or the ukelele from “Over the Rainbow” for your friend’s wedding next year? Take advantage of the library’s free music lessons available through a partnership with ArtistWorks — from piano to French horn to hip hop scratch, with lessons taught by Grammy Award-winning professionals.
