Please request enough items to last a week.

When coming to pick up your items, please stay in your car. We will bring your items out in a bag and deliver them to you. When you are ready to return your items, please put them in the book drop. Do not hand them to us on your next visit.

Please remember all returned items will go into quarantine for 5-7 days. Therefore, they may not be readily available to you when requested.

For those wishing to request books from other libraries, that service (ILL) will resume June 15th.

Our doors will remain locked during the 2 week period of curbside service.

We appreciate your patience as we work toward reopening our library.
