As you all know due to COVID-19 the library has been closed since March 13, 2020. At this time the staff and board are working diligently to resume some library services as soon as possible. We will keep you updated via website, Facebook, and newsletter as to which services will be available and when. We understand everyone is anxious for us to re-open, however, we need to assess all safety measures for our staff as well as all our patrons. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing all of you again as soon as possible.
