Library to restart lending
(Curbside Pickup Only, after May 18)
The Library Trustees have approved a cautious re-start of "curbside pickup" of items from the library. We will quarantine returned items for three days before cleaning them, and staff will wear gloves and face-masks to pack your requested items. The container will sit for a day before pickup, and we will contact you to arrange a time.

Requests can be made by phone and online, including placing holds in our catalog . Check the new item lists at the top, or find photos of them on Instagram .

We greatly appreciate the support of all the businesses and individuals who donated funding or items for the Silent Auction with Wine and Cheese Social, which sadly had to be postponed due to the COVID 19 close-down.
