our Gateway to Knowledge

The Mary Ruth Briggs Library is located in the E.W. and Emma Berry Memorial Room in City Hall. Among the holdings in the library are adult and children reference, fiction, mystery, science fiction, story collections and biographies. Other adult collections include westerns, romance, and audio books. The library is a volunteer project and is not staffed at all times. The library has been recently automated for easier check out and check in.  A library member card is required. You may apply for a library member card under Borrowing Library Materials.  The hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00am to 4:00pm.

There is a library committee comprised of six members. The members are appointed for a two year term. The number of terms for which a member may serve is unlimited. The members of the current library committee are:

  • Pamela Robinson, Chairperson
    Misty Ballard
    Barbara Wood  
  • Joe Stanfield
  • Sandra Hamilton

The library has an e-mail address which is monitored daily. If you would like to communicate with a volunteer or would like for the library to purchase a book, email the Library.

Book and monetary donations are warmly accepted. The volunteer workday is the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00pm. New volunteers are welcome. Visit the library and surround yourself with a world of knowledge and entertainment.

Through the generous donation of friends of the library, Linda and Bob Bridges, the library has a new comment box.  The volunteers are truly grateful for their donation.  Please, when you are in the library, take a minute to write a comment or two about the library on the paper provided and place it in the box.  Comments will be read weekly.  We welcome praise and suggestions as to how to make the library better.  Thank you
