Inter-library loan will continue so please let us know what we can find for you if you don’t see it in our collection. Please use the ILL form or call us with your requests.

Thanks to updated research about touch transmission, we have decided to change the quarantine time to 72 hours. This means we can make in-demand titles available on a speedier schedule and that accounts will clear sooner, too. Library staff will continue to use masks and gloves when handling materials and sanitize all items prior to checkout for porch pickup.

Don’t forget about our online options as well. Libby and Hoopla give you access to a huge variety of books, audiobooks and music and video. Information about these resources are on our Online Resources page.

In addition, we have a wonderful assortment of kits and craft projects waiting for you and hope that you will take advantage of these offerings while you visit the library porch. Check out the family resources page for details.
