Did you know that one out of eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer?
In Dancing with Breast Cancer, Janay Cosner gets real about her journey with the disease. Through a series of poems, Cosner opens up and shares her experience. Each poem is a snapshot of her odyssey. What does it mean to be a survivor; What does it mean to be a warrior?
Join us on August 10, 2017 at 6pm, as Janay Cosner shares with us her “dance with cancer”.

Recent studies have shown that printed book sales have started to increase and digital book sales have been in decline. That may be a surprising statistic for the “digital age”, but perhaps it is the amount of time that people spend on digital devices that has played a factor in this change. If you want fresh printed titles, come on down to the library and see the numerous books we have for check out & for sale! For more information on this trend, read the article here.
