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; We are not limiting the number of students in the library but are practicing social distancing. All books must be returned to the book drops and not the desk. We have also suspended checking out jigsaw puzzles and games. All events and workshops have been canceled for the time being.
All library patrons must now wear masks while in the library. Protective plastic shields have been installed at the circulation and reference desk.
