Q. Is the library open?


Yes. The library reopened on Monday, August 17th at 50% capacity. There will be limited services offered and limited staff assistance.

A mask is now required to enter the library. If you are unable to wear a mask, the library is happy to accommodate you with our phone, online, and curbside services.

The library encourages its patrons to sanitize your hands and surfaces, and respect social distancing guidelines. Curbside pick-up of holds will still be available.
