More About the Library During this Closed Time

Do not return your books at this time.  There will be no new fines during this crisis.

You may still receive automated emails from our computer about fines. We apologize for that. Please disregard those emails and know that the humans at your library will cancel those fines once you return the items.

Please do not return any inter-library loan or Zip book items until the library reopens. You will not accrue any fines for late return of these materials. All reserved items will be held for patrons until library operations resume.   

The library offers e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and databases online.  These materials are free with your library card.

Wi-Fi is on during the day and can be used from outside each library from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, even in your car.

We appreciate the public’s understanding and support for our efforts to do what's right for community health and well-being. Please visit the library website and Facebook pages for updates about library procedures and services, as we respond to this rapidly changing situation.
