To support the health and safety of our community, the library will be closed until further notice. The book drops will be closed. Please keep all materials until the library re-opens. No overdue fees will be assessed. Please disregard any overdue notices you may receive.  Any reserves that were available for you before the library's closing will be available when we re-open.

With the federal government’s extension of the income tax deadline to July 15, 2020, the library will make every effort to reschedule the VITA (tax assistance) appointments once we re-open. Until then, please do not call for tax assistance appointments. Thank you for your understanding!
