Reardan Memorial Library serves as a public information provider for our community, using traditional and innovative technology to encourage curiosity, free inquiry and lifelong learning in a friendly environment.

         Patrons, did you know that one way of preventing youth suicide is to prevent youth from abusing alcohol and drugs? The latest research shows that suicide ideation and attempts increase as drug use increases among teens. 

Reardan has a group of concerned adults and young adults who try to help prevent students from using and abusing substances. RECAP is funded through grants from the government. 

You can help RECAP by taking the following survey:

Guidelines for library use 

 

Masks covering nose and mouth are required. Please wear your own. However, I do have masks inside if you need one.                                                                    

My mask protects you, your mask protects me. Thank you for helping keep everyone healthy!

 

   Use hand sanitizer upon entering.  

 

 

Please remember to stay six feet away from others!
