Accident Library with flower landscape

The Accident Library, a branch of the Ruth Endow Library, opened in its present location, on December 19th, 1977.  This location has five public computers that are equipped with Internet and Microsoft Word. Wireless access, copying, printing, and faxing are all also available.

The collection includes books, DVDs & Blu-Rays, Literacy Kits and Binge Boxes. Teens can enjoy playing with a Nintendo Switch while relaxing in sleek seating, and children can enjoy toys and a soft blue couch for curling up with a good story. Staff provides library cards to residents anywhere in the United States, and visitors can browse a book sale at this location. On vacation? Come on by! Bring your ID and you'll quickly be on your way with a new beach read you can drop off on your way home. 

Programming is available for all ages at this location. Reoccurring programs include Summer Reading Club (June-August), Children’s Storytime (Sept-May), Adult Book Club, and Stitching Circle (Needlework). View all upcoming programs here.  

The community uses this charming place as a resource and gathering place to enrich their minds and meet friends and neighbors. Stop in, get acquainted, and find out how useful and enjoyable your library can be!
