Book Drops Open Beginning Tuesday, May 26th

We are not currently circulating new materials, we are only accepting returns.

We are taking the community and staff safety into consideration when we reopen our libraries. Services will return gradually. Since there are over 9,000 items checked out, our first step will be to accept return items through our libraries' book drops beginning Tuesday, May 26th. Due dates have been extended to June 30th.

We encourage patrons to return the items they have checked out so that these items can be placed in quarantine. The items will be checked in after the quarantine period and when it is safe for staff.

Please visit our Library Information page for our resources that may help you at this time and to apply for a library card if you do not have one. Patrons are invited to use our digital collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks.

Join us for Summer Reading!
