Now open for 30 minute drop-in visits as well as curbside pickup. As of Wednesday, September 22, 2021, properly worn masks are required during open hours for all patrons aged 3 and older while inside the library building.
At their September meeting, the Library Board of Trustees voted to require masks as one part of the library’s mitigation efforts to protect our community and staff during this time of increased COVID transmission. Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and consideration! If you prefer to access library items without entering the building, we still offer Curbside Pickup. You can reserve or request items via the online catalog, email or phone and we will leave them on the table downstairs for pick up during open hours.
