* Just as a reminder we ARE NOT taking any book or materials donations at this time.

“We are looking forward to once again opening our doors to the public. We appreciate your patience as we have navigated through the pandemic. However, since everything is not yet back to normal and the virus is still a threat, we are modifying our hours and service models to ensure both staff and patron safety. All staff will be wearing masks and patrons are strongly recommended to wear facial covering as well. Masks will be offered for free for anyone without a mask that wishes to wear one. The Main Library and the branches will be open to the public for 90 minute intervals and then will be closed for 30 minutes for cleaning and sanitizing. We will also be limiting the number of people in each building at one time. The goal is to allow patrons to browse the shelves, get their materials and depart. We, like everyone else, are hopeful that this “new normal” will not last much longer and that we can get back to life as we know it.”
–Bill Martino, Library Director

Take a look at the services we will offer during Phase 2 of our Reopening:
