COVID-19 and the Library

Updated 6/17/20

This week we're happy to announce that we are transitioning to walk-up window service - no appointment necessary!  Our hours are Monday-Wednesday 10 AM-5 PM and Thursday-Friday 10 AM-7 PM.  If you prefer the convenience of grab & go service, just let us know when to expect you, and we can have your holds checked out and waiting.
