What's new at the library

Yes, we are open!

We are back open for our regular hours and operations. Masks are required to come inside, and curbside service is still available. Community room reservations can be made for gatherings up to 30 people. We look forward to seeing you!

Preschool Story Hour Resumes April 30

Our Friday morning preschool story hour will resume Friday, April 30 at 10:30 AM in the children's area. This usually consists of stories, songs & rhymes, and a craft, and you can come as often as you wish or your schedule allows. Masks are required for those 2 years and older to come into the library. We hope you will join us!

Materials are no longer required to be quarantined!

Our library system (RAILS) has ended their requirement to quarantine materials upon return. This means materials will be directly shelved upon return, making hold lists and turn around times on materials faster. If you would still like an item quarantined before you take it home, please notify library staff.

“RAILS will end the quarantine requirement for materials moving through our delivery service effective Monday, April 12. Continued research shows that COVID-19 mainly spreads through respiratory droplets in the air."

Now offering Hoopla Digital!

We are excited to begin offering Hoopla Digital, a supplement to our current apps for digital materials. Similar to Axis 360 & Overdrive, you can download ebooks & audiobooks to your device, but Hoopla also gives you access to movies, TV shows, and music--all without the wait list!
