Great news! We are now able to take steps to relax some restrictions at the library while maintaining the safest environment possible. Appointments are no longer expected and the following guidelines apply:

  • Return to our regular hours, Tuesday 11am – 7pm, Wednesday & Thursday 3pm-6pm, Friday 11am-4pm, Saturday 9am – 1pm
  • All visitors must to wear a mask or use our pickup service. Babies aged two and under are exempt from masking.
  • Capacity will remain low and depend on how visitors are using the library. Ask the librarian if it is a good time to browse before entering if the space looks busy. 
  • Short visits are still in effect. Computer use is outside when possible.
  • Pickup service is still available for those who prefer it.
  • Books will no longer need to quarantine per CDC guidelines.

Our front porch is getting some much needed TLC! Use the ramp when the front entrance is a work zone.
