July 6, 2020: The library is OPEN with regular hours and limited services. Because the number of people allowed in the building at once is limited, we encourage quick visits.
- Effective May 21, checkout periods are 1 week for DVDs, 2 weeks for new books, and three weeks for everything else. Borrowed materials automatically renew up to three times, unless someone else has requested the item. Learn more.
- Outdoor book returns are open. Returns must be placed in the outdoor bookdrops, not returned inside.
- Returned items are currently quarantined for before being checked in. During that time, your online account will still say that you have them. Don’t worry; any fines that accrue during the quarantine period will be automatically removed upon check-in.
- The library’s wifi can be used from vehicles and public spaces near the building. It is available from 7am to 11pm, even when the library is closed.
- The Friends of the Library are currently accepting donations of books, music and movies. We are currently only able to accept donations on Mondays from 10am to 2pm. In November and December, the Friends will suspend operations for the holidays and will not be able to accept donations.
