  1. Hours – M-W-F- 10am – 3pm & T-Th- 12pm – 5pm
  2. You must wear a face covering while in the library unless you have a medical exemption
  3. We will have a hand sanitizing station at the library entrance and encourage patrons to use upon entering
  4. Computers will be available by appointment only and will be limited to 30 minutes
  5. Patrons are encouraged to select their materials, check them out and then exit the building. Leisure seating will not be available

We understand that this is a new and difficult environment.  We ask for your patience as we go through this process.  Not only are these provisions designed to keep our patrons and staff as safe as possible but they are required by the state to remain open.

Our program this year will begin on Monday, July 6th and end on Friday, August 14th.  We will have craft pickups, YouTube videos and prizes.  Check the website frequently for new activities and do-at-home crafts.  Each week will have something new.
