The library will be closed Saturdays in October, but resuming Saturday, November 7th. "At-Risk Time" will change to 9:00-9:30AM beginning Monday, November 2nd.

***** Our building is OPEN and operating with patron limited capacity! Please read our PROCEDURES. Curbside service remains available - read THIS PDF for FAQs. All in-building events, clubs, and meetings are cancelled until further notice. We do not currently have space to accomodate tutors or virtual classrooms. We appreciate your cooperation. *****

***** Due to COVID restrictions, the Library will not admit unaccompanied minors, at any time, until further notice. Further, once in-person classes resume, parents may not pick up students in the library parking lot, as this creates crowds at the entrance to the library, and poses a health risk to the public. Parents may pick up their children only at the schools or Burke’s Park. You may read the complete policy HERE.

Please return all items in our outside book drops! All items checked out in March were due by JULY 15TH. (Returned items are being quarantined within the building for 3 days before being discharged from your account - no fines will be charged during that quarantine time.)
