The Library will be answering questions via email, Monday-Friday, during the closure. Click here to submit your question with our Ask the Library form. A library staff member will respond within 24 hours.
Patrons who have library materials currently checked out should hold onto those items and wait to return them when the Library re-opens. Do not leave library materials outside the book drop or outside the library entrance or you may be charged damage or lost item fees. Items originally due between February 25 and April 14 are now due April 15.
At this time, the Library is not issuing new library cards. All library cards that expired between January 1-May 15, 2020 have been automatically renewed with a new expiration date of May 31, 2020.
