PUBLIC SAFETY IS IMPORTANT

  • No public restrooms will be available for use

  • No story time at this time.

  • The library uses the quarantine method of sanitization for all circulated library materials. We ask that patrons DO NOT use disinfectant wipes or spray on library materials as this can cause significant damage. If it is found that library materials have been damaged while in your possession, then you will be held responsible for the cost of replacement of said materials.

  • All returned items will be checked in immediately upon return and placed in quarantine for 5 days before being returned to circulation.

    • Therefore, a book may show as available for checkout in the computer, but may be unavailable for checkout due to being in quarantine.

    • You may still place the item on hold in your account for check out once cleared from quarantine.

    • You will be notified via email when the item(s) are available for check out.

    • All items not picked up in 7 days will be removed from hold and returned to circulation.
