Coronavirus (COVID-19) Library Update

Coronavirus Disease 2019

Due to the recently issued Stay at Home Order, the Library will remain closed through April 8. We plan to tentatively open to the public on Thursday, April 9.

All item due dates will be extended and fines will be waived on all materials until May 1. Customers are encouraged to keep their materials until then.
 
Thank you for understanding, as the health and safety of our staff and our cardholders is our number one priority.

Don’t forget, the Library has several streaming and downloadable collections, including books, movies and music, which are all accessible from home computers and devices.

For more information on COVID-19 and precautions you can take, please visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov.
