  • There will be no onsite programs, but the library will continue to provide virtual programming.
  • All meetings, including Boards, will be virtual only.
  • Public Access Computers: time will be limited to one hour per day & individual.
  • Curbside pickup: We will continue the curbside option during our normal business hours for those patrons who still wish to utilize this service. Please allow 24 hours between the time a request is made and when the materials will be ready for pickup.
  • Seating: Aside from the public access computers, all seating will be removed from the floor. At this time we ask that time in the library be limited to finding materials and checking out, in order to limit close contact.

  • Requirement of masks and social distancing by patrons—Properly worn masks are required to use in-person library services. If you are unable to wear a mask for personal reasons, please make use of our contactless services, such as curbside, or contact us to work out individual arrangements. We want to provide the safest and best service to all of our community.
  • Hours will be as follows: Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-5:30pm. We will be CLOSED on Saturday and Sunday.
