In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the library building is closed. Because of the evolving situation, a date to reopen has not been determined.

To promote community health and encourage staying home when possible, we are asking our users to keep currently checked out materials until the library building reopens. Due dates have been extended and no fees will be added during the building closure. If you have items on hold, they will remain on hold until we reopen. No new holds can be placed at this time. 

You are encouraged to make use of the extensive online resources offered by the library. Our online library branch includes ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines, as well as streaming video and music. You will also find online one-on-one tutoring, skills building and research resources, and a language learning tool. Click.Learn.Play.
