New Year, New JCPL Website!

Welcome to the new JCPL website! Take a look around, knock some dust off the displays.

Trust us when we say this is not last year's web library.

Stormy weather? Stock up on books at the library

There is nothing like a power outage to make you appreciate the value of a good book and a flashlight.

Stop in at the library and browse through our stacks of modern novels, true crime, biographies, romance. Get lost in history, or a good vampire romance, or discover a new talent.
