Open Hours with Limited Services:

Welcome Back. The Library is going to look very different when you return! We will have limited services to reduce contact and close interactions to help slow the spread of COVID-19.The building occupancy is limited so staff will be monitoring capacity. You may be asked to wait in line until we have space for additional patrons. We are encouraging everyone to find your materials and proceed to check out. 

Please feel free to continue using our curbside pickup service if you are at a heightened risk with COVID-19. Holds can be picked up during curbside pickup or during open hours.

And Summer Reading is on! We will be running it a bit differently this year. Please see the following pages for more information. Kids Summer ReadingTeen Summer ReadingAdult Summer Reading.
