What's New at Your Library?

November 2020

Library Returns to Curbside Delivery!

Beginning Monday, November 16, the Library will return to Stage 2 of our Reopening Plan: Curbside Delivery, Online Resources, Telephone Service and Virtual Programs.

The drive-up book return is OPEN for returns. Items will remain on your account for at least 4 days as they will be quarantined before discharge. Donations of books cannot be accepted at this time. Visit for more information.

Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in the area, the Library is prioritizing the health and safety of patrons and staff by temporarily closing in-person library service to help mitigate the spread of the virus in the community.  Thank you for your continued support in helping us stay safe to stay open.
