Pictured here is our stairwell with new paint and flooring. The picture doesn't do it justice-- it's beautiful! We are committed to making our library a lovely gathering space and can't wait until you are here to enjoy it when it's finished. Learn more.
Until then, it may be noisy when you visit us up until 3 p.m. daily as most of the work takes place prior to this time. We are still following COVID safety recommendations. Read more here before you visit.
Important: We went back to the old way we used to manage holds. You'll still receive your usual notification when your items are ready, and you now have seven days to pick up your materials (instead of four.) And, just like before, we are no longer checking out items in advance. Don't forget to check out your materials before you leave. If you're going through our drive-up window, it may take a little longer-- make sure you have your library card or ID ready for us. It will help speed things along.
