In response to COVID-19, the Library will be CLOSED to the public until March 30th .
Staff will be available to answer the library phone during this closure, Monday-Friday between the hours of 10-3.
We encourage you NOT to return materials until April 1st; however book returns are open for your convenience. ALL late fees and fines will be waived for this time period. Enjoy the materials you have at home a bit longer!
We also encourage you to visit our website and take advantage of our wonderful services, like OverDrive for downloading eBooks and eAudiobooks, Lynda.com, Creativebug, Mango Languages, and more! We will periodically update you on some ways you can utilize your online library while we are closed.
I would like to personally thank you for your patience. And I would like to take the time to thank the library Trustees, staff and custodial team for their dedication to making the library a safe place for you to visit.
I will be in touch with you regarding any changes.

I would like to issue and additional update to you, our library patrons regarding COVID-19.
As a purely preventative and precautionary measure, we are cancelling all public events, outreach initiatives, and public room rentals immediately through April 5th.
To ensure that our limited staff can maintain a sanitized environment for you to enjoy, we put in place the additional following precautions:
Again, these are purely preventative measures in addition to the updates I sent yesterday and our already stringent cleaning plan. We thank you for your cooperation.

Library staff have been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and we want to assure you that the health and safety of our patrons is our top priority.
In response to concerns about the spread of this respiratory disease, we have increased the frequency of cleaning in high traffic areas and “high-touch” surfaces and objects such as computers, door handles, and elevator buttons.
We have limited the toy selection available in our children’s room to “easy to clean” items only.
Each public bathroom has information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on how to maintain good hygiene and best practices for washing hands.
Upon entering and exiting the library, please use our hand sanitizing kiosks.
As a reminder, it is always good practice for patrons, parents, and children, regardless of exposure risks, to adhere to the following preventative measures year round:
Thank you for your cooperation in helping ensure the health and safety of all our patrons and staff. We will keep you up to date with any further information.
