COVID-19 Library Services & Hours

Library Status

After several months of being physically distant and offering services online, we are excited to be opening our doors to the community on July 6, 2021, and return to normal hours August 2, 2021. Things will look a little different: staff will be hybrid, and some will still be wearing masks, but we will be smiling on the other side, ready to provide services, technology, and access to building spaces.
