Find out what is happening at your libraries. Keep up to date with resources, events and other news via social media.
Lives change at your library. Share your library stories. In honor of National Library Week, tell us how a library made a difference in your life and how you see your library experiences helping you in the future by taking the survey below. Then, stop by either library and receive a delicious chocolate candy. Survey respondents will be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card from the Becker College Bookstore. The survey is open until April 27th. There will be one winner drawn at each library on April 28, 2014. Good Luck!

The OED is a historical guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over 600,000 words from across the English-speaking world. The OED is considered the most complete record of the English language. It traces a word from its beginnings (which may be in Old or Middle English) to the present, showing the varied and changing ways in which it has been used and illustrating the changes with quotations which add to the historical and linguistic record.
