Library Updates

5/1/2020

The library will be closed through May 28 due to our state governor's executive order and public health concerns over the COVID-19 virus.

On April 30, 2020, the Governor extended the library closure order until May 28, 2020.

We will be eager to welcome you back to your new library once restrictions have been lifted and it is safe to do so.  Reopening will most likely be gradual, starting with curbside pickup of books and materials.

In the meantime, we are offering a wide variety of online programs and digital materials.  Watch our website and visit our Facebook page for updates on what’s available.

All due dates have been extended until the end of May.  Do not worry about returning your items at this time.  See our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Please check back here for updates.

Thank you for your understanding.
