Welcome to our newly revised library operation and services. Over the past few months we have undergone multiple changes. From being closed to offering curbside service, to building virtual options into our services and beyond. Below you will find what we have changed to ensure the safety of our community, staff, and everyone who visits the library.

1. We are open to the public by appointment, Monday-Friday 9 am – 6 pm. You may choose your own books, movies, audiobooks, and magazines to take home and enjoy.

2. You may still request a curbside pickup. Just give a call from your vehicle when you arrive, and we are very happy to bring your items out to you.

3. We ask when you are returning your materials to please place them in the book drop—we need to quarantine all items 72 hours upon return to the library.

4. Courier has resumed for us on a regular basis, not all libraries are doing this as of yet—please check with other libraries as to what they are doing for courier (incoming materials from other libraries). Note: courier items upon arrival sit for 72 hours, then are processed.

5. We do require a mask or face covering when you visit the library.

6. We have one computer for public access.

7. We ask that you do social distancing practice while in the library.

8. Limit of 6 people in the library, including staff.
