Precautions & Recommendations

  • Our goal is to remain open and continue to provide community service without posing a risk to the health of our staff or patrons.
  • We have enhanced our cleaning procedures based upon recommendations from the CDC.
  • We will be requesting our patrons to hold their items, as well as their library card, up for scanning while checking out. This will help to minimize hand-to-hand contact.
  • If you are not feeling well, we ask that you please rest up at home. Our staff will be doing the same.
  • And if you are not feeling well, rest easy; all late fees will be waived until further notice. However, our outside book drop remains open 24/7.
  • We will be temporarily closing our Bookstore, and we will not be accepting book donations, until further notice.
  • With a heavy heart, we have decided to reschedule our March programs. Please see below for more information.
