Exciting news!! Beginning Wednesday, July 8th, the Library will be opening its doors (with some restrictions, reduced services and reduced hours.) We encourage patrons to limit their visits to 30 minutes. We also have a maximum number of patrons allowed in the building at one time, so you may be asked to wait.

2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

Library Takeout curbside pick-up will be available:
