Our Doors Are Open – Here Are Our Current Hours

On July 13th we opened our doors for the public to visit our libraries. We are happy to see our patrons again but have a few things that you should know.

Remember the ABCs
A- Ask for assistance
B- Browse for books
C- Check out

  • You need to wear a mask inside our buildings – we have them on, too! If you forgot yours, we have one for you. If you can’t wear one, call us. We will bring your items outside for you.
  • We have hand sanitizer – yes, you can use it!
  • Our bathrooms are closed to the public for now – we are sorry for the inconvenience.
  • While you can browse the stacks, we are asking that you limit your time in the library.
  • Meeting rooms and seating are not available until further notice.
  • One or two computers per library are available for browsing for up to 30 minutes at this time. Printing is available from one computer and we still can copy, scan and fax.

Our libraries have lessened their hours at this time. If you do not feel comfortable coming into the building you can still call the library and arrange for outside pickup. Below are our adapted hours and phone numbers for each library.

New Cash Policies:

In an effort to reduce the cash we are handling at our libraries, we are changing some of our policies relating to money handling. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.

  • New prices for black and white copies. $.25 for black and white copies, $.50 for color
  • Fine payments in increments of $10. We ask that you either allow your fines to accumulate to $10 before you pay them or that you pre-pay $10 toward your fines. We will credit your account so that you will not have to pay until your fines reach the $10 threshold again.
  • PayPal and Credit Card options. We are asking patrons to consider using non-cash payment methods. Utilize PrinterOn or PayPal for your printing and copy needs – we can help you if you have questions.
  • No rental fees for DVDs. There will still be overdue fines so please make sure you return your items when they are due.
  • If you do need to pay cash, please consider donating your change. The library appreciates your generosity and we rely on your support!
