Reopening FAQ’s:


Will curbside pick up still be available during this process?

Yes! We are excited to still offer curbside pick-up to you. Simply follow the steps in order to place your hold and pick up at the front of the library.

When will in-person programming resume?

At this time, we do not have a date for when in person programming will resume. Your librarians are hard at work making sure you will have a wonderful virtual programming experience. In order to keep everyone safe and healthy and avoid gathering in large groups, all programming will be scheduled virtually and can be streamed through the appropriate channels, Zoom/Facebook/YouTube. The library is here for you!

Can I bring my donations to the library?

Due to the health and safety concerns, the library will not be accepting donations at this time. Please do not donate any books using the library book.

Can I browse library items on the shelves?

 Yes, however, if you handle items without checking them out, please place them on our designated blue carts throughout the library. These items will need to be quarantined for 7 days before being shelved again to prevent the possible spread of Covid-19.

Can I use a library meeting room? 

Library meeting rooms will be unavailable until further notice. The library does have study carrels and seating that is placed six feet apart from other tables and are frequently cleaned throughout the day.

Can I check out items at the library? 

Patrons may use the library to check out materials, use the public computers (limited computers available), scan, fax and  make copies.
