Library Re-Opening Plans and COVID-19

Library staff have been working hard to figure out our reopening plans and how to keep everyone safe.

We have come up with a four phase plan to slowly start resuming services. Phase one has begun and our book drops are officially open! We will begin Curbside Pickup and the rest of Phase 2 on June 1. All item due dates have been extended until June 15. All fees will be waived until August 31.

Please note, this plan may change at anytime based on guidelines given by the Governor’s office and the CDC. Check our website, social media or sign-up for our weekly eNews for updates.

 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.
