- Only the Main Library is open Mondays-Saturdays, 10 am-6 pm.
- New! Special visiting hour for high-risk patrons only: 10-11 am Mondays-Saturdays.
- The CDC defines high-risk individuals as older adults and people with underlying medical conditions. We encourage everyone who is not at increased risk to plan their in-person library visits between 11 am and 6 pm Mondays-Saturdays.
- Reserving the first hour of each day for high-risk patrons is one of many ways we are working together to keep each other safe.
- To help contain the spread of COVID-19, the library is now in Service Level 2. Visits look different than they did during pre-COVID-19 times. Learn more »
