Porch Pick-Up will continue to be an option.  Simply email (preferred) or leave a phone message for the librarian. We’ll pack up your order and alert you when it’s ready. 
Safety Measures:  Masks and hand sanitizer will continue to be the order of the day. All returned library materials continue to be quarantined for 72 hours. I am still asking that library visits be kept brief, in order to minimize length of exposure to library staff and patrons alike. An abundance of caution but that’s what we’re doing. 
Computers and WiFi: Library WiFi is available 24/7. If you need a library computer for more than 15 min. that we suggest for visits, please speak to the librarian and we will make a plan.
Interlibrary Loan Services: We are accepting requests now. Let us know how we can help.

Librarian’s Note: Stop in and wish our wonderful Summer Intern Katie King well as she heads off to college next week. Thank you to the FOL for funding her position! Monday: 9-1, Tuesday: 3-5, Wednesday: 2-7, Thursday & Friday: Closed, Saturday: 9-1, Sunday: Closed These hours reflect the coming of Fall as well as our lower number of visitors. No doubt hours will expand when we leave the Covid era behind. Porch Pick-Ups can be requested at anytime via email: so do not hesitate to put in your requests.

We will ask that you wear a mask, and sanitize your hands upon arrival. 

AND Thank you for your patience–donations of gently used books now accepted: We can accept up to two shopping bags of gently used books per household up until the book sale. Note: we cannot use VHS, old magazines, textbooks, anything dilapidated or musty, and no music CDs at this time. Thank you so much for complying with our guidelines–we know a lot of you have been waiting for this moment! Please only deliver books during library hours. Thank you!
