Library open for Browse, Checkout, & Go

The building is open for browsing, but please limit your visit to an hour or less. Read through these details carefully. Unlike businesses, we have used materials coming in which means we have to be more vigilant of safety measures. Please be patient with staff and other patrons when you visit.

  • Hours:
      • Monday-Thursday: 9 am-9 pm
      • Friday-Saturday: 9 am-5 pm
      • Sunday: 1-5 pm
  • We will be enforcing a capacity limit of 40 patrons at a time, so we ask that you not linger in the building for extended periods or plan to meet others for business or tutoring (please limit your visit to an hour). Most furniture has been temporarily removed to allow and encourage social distancing
  • You must wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth while in the Library. If you choose not to or are unable to do so, you may use our Drive-up Window as your pick up location for holds or we will gather materials for you while you wait in the parking lot. If you have a health issue that prohibits you from wearing a mask, Homebound Delivery may be another option for you
  • Children 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult caregiver; children ages 2 and up must be wearing a mask
  • You may check out items with staff at the Service Center or use our self-checkout stations. If you have a bill to pay, you may do so online from home, at our self-checkout stations, or by mailing a check to us (we will not be accepting cash at this time)
