No food or drink is permitted in the Library.
For now, holds are limited to 5 at a time, and checkouts are limited to 30 at a time.

We are offering mostly virtual programming at this time. We believe we will be resuming more in-person programming later in the year when staffing and public health conditions permit it.

Patrons were not charged fines for items returned late from March 13 to June 30, 2020. We resumed charging fines on overdue items on July 1, 2020.
Fines can be paid at the front desk or at our self-check machines in the building lobby during open hours, or online at any time.
