The Library’s goal is to create an environment that balances our need to provide quality essential services to our community, provide our employees with a safe working environment, and do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

In an effort to implement social distancing practices, library hours have been temporarily reduced. You can learn more about our phased reopening plan here.

In the meantime, library staff are offering curbside pick-up service for library materials, public computer appointments, and appointments for notary service and new library card registrations.

Beginning July 6th, we’ll be offering curbside pick-up service and computer appointments during the following hours:

Monday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Tuesday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Wednesday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Thursday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Friday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

We also encourage everyone to take advantage of our downloadable eBooks & eAudiobooks via the Libby app. If you have questions about accessing these resources, please give us a call.
