Library Remains in Phase 2: Curbside Pickup
The library will remain in the Curbside Pickup phase of our reopening plan while we prepare the building for reopening to the public. We are applying for grants to help us with social distancing signage, deep cleaning, and other supplies to make the library as safe as possible for you. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our staff and patrons, so we are closely following protocols from the  Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and MiOSHA. Additionally, new policies and procedures have been approved by the Library Board to ensure safety and proper use of the building. As more information and guidelines for public libraries are received from the State of Michigan, we will engage our community more. Check our website and Facebook page for further updates. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and understanding!
Place your Holds and Use Curbside Pickup
We are excited to announce that holds can now be placed on items from all libraries in our system! Place your holds through the online catalog . You will receive notification when your items are ready for pickup. Call us when you get here and we'll bring your items out to you. It's that simple.

Curbside Pickup Hours are: Mon-Fri, 12 - 6 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Here are some things to remember:
