The library has subscribed to 2 new databases, which we make available free to our cardholders (remember, library cards are free and easy to get!)
PressDisplay provides complete digital versions of over 200 newspapers from 50 countries. Pages are reproduced in their entirety, including photographs, illustrations, and ads.

We have also subscribed to Chilton's online library of domestic automotive manuals. Use it to find accurate, complete and detailed repair information on your car, truck, van or SUV.

PressDisplay must be used at one of our library computers. Chilton may be used from your home computer, although you will need to contact a librarian (972-237-5701) for a login and password your first time. There is a link to Chilton from our library webpage.

On Friday, June 23 at 1 pm, we will show a free movie starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. This big-screen presentation at the Main Library will feature free refreshments. Get out of the heat with some fancy footwork and songs by Ira and George Gershwin!

This Thursday night (June 22) city horticulturist Susan Henson will present a free program on indoor gardening. Learn how to select and care for the best plants for your patio, windowsill or interior. This program will be at 7 pm at the Main Library. No signup is required. We will serve refreshments and draw for door prizes.
