BUILDING IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

If you prefer to pickup books curbside that is still an option.

Following state guidelines, face masks are no longer mandatory. However, if you are not vaccinated it is strongly suggested that you wear a face mask in the library building. Hand sanitizing continues in the short term. Use of face masks by everyone is strongly encouraged in the Children’s Room as children under the age of 12 are still not able to be vaccinated.
