Covid-19 and the Library Update The library has shortened its hours for the time being: Mon-Fri 8:00-6:00 and Weekends 1:00-5:00. However, library staff will be working remotely, answering chats and emails, most of the other hours that the library is normally open. Nearly all of our resources are available online. As always, the back-up 24/7 chat librarians are available during hours we are not available.

Local students;.Everyone who enters the library must wear a mask at all times unless they are in a study room.  Food is not allowed at this time, but drinks are fine. All books must be returned to the book drops and not the desk. We have also suspended checking out jigsaw puzzles and games.  

Lunch and Learn: Murder Most Foul- The Evolution of Literary Detectives From Sherlock Holmes to Kinsey Milhone will be offered both in person and via Zoom.  Plan to attend this most interesting discussion by Dr. Clif Mason.on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 12:30.   Details are here

Banned Books Week will be celebrated at the library September 27 - October 3. This is the week we celebrate our freedom t read without censorship. Find out more about the week's activities here
