Library Update
Resources & Programs for Adults
2/21 - 2/27
Thank you to our patrons and community for continuing to support a safe and pleasant environment while visiting us! We look forward to continuing to serve you both inside the library and via curbside services, and we thank you for your patience as we work to gradually reintroduce our services in a safe and responsible manner.

Although we are thrilled to have our members back in the building, remember that we are enforcing new "Pop In & Pick Up" procedures to safeguard the health of our community. All items will continue to be quarantined for at least 72 hours upon return, and overdue fines will continue to be waived until further notice.

Title of the Week

Fifty Words for Rain
by Asha Lemmie

"This is a hauntingly elegant epic about the bonds that connect family and the prejudices born from cultural expectation under the extreme pressures of war...Fifty Words for Rain shines as a startlingly bold debut for a lyrically gifted author."
