About the Tri-City Library District

The Tri-City Library District selects, acquires, organizes and provides access to books, magazines, cds, dvds and other materials of interest and/or permanent value. These items provide for the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the surrounding areas users. The Library also promotes the importance and appreciation of reading and community involvement from childhood through adult programs.

The Tri-City Library District site also serves as a central repository and online community center. We want everyone to look beyond the books and see the library as an important resource in the Tri-City area.
