The only entrance requirement is interest.”

Summer brings changes to our regular Friday Movie program. Studios release fewer suitable movies to DVD during the summer, so we will only show good new movies as they become available. In addition, the Summer Evening Market outside the Library makes it necessary to show movies at 2pm rather than 6pm.
Check back here or pick up a free bookmark at the Talent Library, listing upcoming movie names and dates as soon as we know them. Showtime will be at 2pm on Friday in the Talent Library Community Room ... and the movies are FREE!

Welcome to our corner. The Friends of Talent Library are volunteers dedicated to the support, assistance, and promotion of our local library.
The Talent Friends give extensive financial support to the Summer Reading and Storytime programs, provide volunteers to aid the library staff, maintain the glass display cases, sponsor free programs and Friday movies throughout the year, and fund acquisition of additional books, magazines, and DVDs for our Talent Library.
Our successful Capital Campaign raised a third of million dollars, increasing the patron and book space in the new Talent Branch Library by over 1400 square feet.
Current priorities are to maintain open hours at the Talent Library – and to support and expand the programs, activities, and collection available at the Talent Library.
Board Meetings are held at the Talent Library on the fourth Friday of the month at 1:30 pm – unless otherwise posted here.
This year's Annual Membership Meeting will be on Thursday, April 25, at 6:30 pm and is in lieu of a regular April board meeting. There will be no board meeting in June, July, and December 2013. Our current Board list.
Our meetings are open to all. Bring your ideas and energy. We guarantee you a warm reception.
There's never been a better time to join and show our community's support for our new Talent Library! Membership Application.
