Our Usual Reminder During the Winter Months:  On days when we are open (Monday afternoons, Wednesday mornings and afternoons, Saturdays), we pay attention to possible bad weather and difficult traveling conditions.  If there is snow or ice coming our way, please keep checking our library Facebook page, or call us during our regular hours — before you get in your car to drive here — to see if we are opening late or closing early!  We usually close if the local schools close for a snow day.  Stay safe, everyone.

We also close at 5 pm on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and are closed on Memorial Day, July 4, Christmas Eve Day and Christmas, Thanksgiving, and all Federal holidays . Otherwise you’ll find us there!

 Here is our current information about health and safety regarding COVID:

*We still recommend that everyone wears a mask, regardless of vaccination status, as a precaution. There are still people who have not been able to get vaccinated yet for various reasons, and we want the library to be a place where everyone can come and feel safe. We also hope to protect our youngest patrons, and our elders or immuno-compromised visitors. Please help protect all of our wonderful community members by wearing your mask in the library at all times.

*We will still provide curbside service, just call us or send us an email, and we will put together your order.

Our plans may change and evolve over time, but for now our focus is on seeing you!
