The Library is open limited services!  Things may be a little different than when you last visited-- operating hours, building capacity, and seating are limited, and not all services are being offered.

Although we are starting with limited hours,  we plan to transition back to our original 60 hour per week schedule when we can hire and train additional staff and return to full staffing levels.
