Latest News & Updates

Reopening During COVID-19

We are in the last stages of installing safety procedures and finalizing COVID-19 protocols to welcoming back the public in a limited capacity.  As part of our planning, we are addressing staff and patron concerns around safety and have nearly satisfied those requirements. We continue to keep an eye on case numbers and assuming there are no surges in our community, we hope to allow limited access soon. Please keep following us on social media for updates and reopening information.  Looking forward to welcoming you (safely) into the newly renovated library! 

Curbside Pickup/Book Drop Returns are Back!

We have resumed these services at our newly renovated home at 54 Olmsted Rd. See our Welcome Back page for a more comprehensive look at the new Library. Here’s what you need to know:

What should I do about my holds?

Patrons can once again place holds and borrow from our full and expanded on-site collection at 54 Olmsted Rd. Once you have received a notification that your holds are available for pick up, reserve your time slot here!

What if I need to return items?

You can now return books at 54 Olmsted Rd.

Open Book

Can I get books again?

We are now open for book returns and contactless pickup at 54 Olmsted Rd! To provide for proper social distancing, patrons may reserve hour-long time slots to pick up their materials via the Library’s website and we will require only a three-hour advance notice for reservations (allowing for same day hold and pick up in many cases).

The Library hours for holds pickup and book returns are:

Monday 9:00AM – 7:00PM

Tuesday – Friday: 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Saturday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Sunday: Closed

Staff will be available by phone during these business hours and the community can continue to message the Library for reader advisory, reference services and general help at any time via email.

What about fines?

NO FINES! We will not charge fines during this transition phase.
