Free Weekends in Your National Parks

The U.S. National Park Service will waive entrance fees at more than 100 national parks during three special weekends this summer. Designed to promote tourism and help budget strapped families at the same time, these weekends are scheduled for June 20 & 21, July 18 & 19 and August 15 & 16. If you are thinking of packing up the car and heading out, be sure to stop by the library and& check out one of our many National Park Guidebooks.

Weekend Plans?

Memorial Day is this weekend!  If your plans lean more towards grilling at home than campfire hotdogs and smores, don't forget to stop at CPL for a movie!  It's perfect for a family movie night at home.  It's also great for that long car ride to the cabin up north. Here are some vacation themed films to get you started.
