Because of the COVID-19 virus, we will be closed until further notice. This closure is being assessed weekly and we will provide notice of re-opening as soon as it is safely possible to do so. All library material due dates are now back to their usual loan period.  Thank you for your continued patience.

Our book return is now open for item returns only, no donations at this time please.  Please do not return anything if you or anyone in your household is ill and for 3 days of no fever without the use of fever reducing medications.  You will not incur late fees at this time.    Also, since the book return is now open, we will be resuming our normal loan periods on all items.  We continue to provide curbside pick-up, online programs, and wi-fi access outside the building.
