If you arrive in the middle of a session, please knock on the door. You will be admitted for the rest of the session hour, space permitting. Masks must fully cover your mouth and nose at all times while in the building. Thank you.

Drive-Up Material Pick Up

Curbside service is available each day to all patrons. Patrons can place holds for library materials 3 ways:

Library staff will pull requested items, check them out, and prepare them for pickup. You will receive a notification when your holds are ready to be picked up. Pick ups will be available in the Civic Center foyer. Please use the book drop to return materials. Laptops are available for checkout for patrons wishing to use a public computer but who are unable to enter the building (please contact the library for more information).


Patrons may also contact the library for personalized book suggestions (ask for a specific author, genre, target reading category, etc.).
