Library Will Pack Up for Repairs Project
The Repairs Project started on the exterior of the Library in October, and work will soon begin on the interior portion.

The building's aged HVAC system will be partially replaced to provide improved air circulation and safer conditions for patrons and staff. A drive-up materials return drop and drive-up service window will be constructed on the east side of the building, two amenities that have long been requested by the community. A new automated materials handling system will also be installed.

(Returns accepted through December 12. After that date, please hold onto items until the Library building reopens)
