Welcome to Lois Nelson Public Library 

LIBRARIES The Heart of Every Community
Each community has a place everyone can go to connect, explore, discover, and grow.
Step into the library and you will find a world of resources of every kind.
Attend special events, use computers for free, do research, read, or find a DVD.
Libraries are the heart of society, it's true, and at the heart of the library?
Great people like you!

Effective Immediately!  Children under thirteen (13) may not be left unattended.  Parents or guardians are responsible for the behavior of their children in the library.  A sibling and/or a babysitter (age 16 or older) may accompany a young child; however, if the sibling or babysitter cannot control the younger child, the younger child shall be considered unattended.  When children are left unattended they often become disruptive.
