Come On In – the Books Have Missed You!

Browsing is back! The library began a phased return to open hours on 4/05/21, and you can once again browse for books, movies, and audiobooks 6 days a week.  Curbside service will continue to be available  6 days a week during this time. The continued good health of our staff, volunteers, and patrons is our highest priority, and we appreciate your understanding as we gradually restore the hours that our building is open to the public:

  • Our PCs can be reserved for a maximum of 1 hour.
  • The Children’s Room will be open for browsing but will remain closed to all other activities for the foreseeable future. Children handling books while in the library must be old enough to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer. Access limited to one family at a time during this phase.
