Improve Your Home

This online database has videos and articles with step-by-step instructions from leading home improvement magazines and reference books for nearly every kind of home project you can imagine.
Get In Shape
Starting a new exercise routine can be difficult, especially if you’re lacking basic at-home equipment like weights or a yoga mat. But the library is here to help! You can borrow fitness kits to help achieve your exercise goals at home or to explore new ways to workout.
The library is obviously the best place to find reading material. But if you’re not sure what to read next, check out our blog for staff reviews, C-SPL Reader of the Month suggestions, and more.
Looking for something more specific? Submit a Book Match form and a librarian will create a personalized list of reading recommendations just for you!
