Phased

Re Opening

We are beginning a phased reopening. We are currently open to the public but we are asking patrons to limit their time in the library to 30 minutes. Computers are currently only for work and printing purposes. We are social distancing and highly recommend a face covering. Curbside service is still available if you wish to use it. We will be posting updates as soon as they are available but know that we are taking advice from county health department and CDC guidelines. Phases may not move as quickly as anyone would like but we do this to keep you, our staff, and community safe. Thank you for understanding.
