Mask Mandate

Starting Tuesday, December 14, we removed the mask mandate at the library. Please use your discretion and wear a mask if that is the best choice for you. If you would like to buy a higher quality mask, take a look at this approved N95 manufacturer's list.

Two additional points. 1) Curbside Pickup remains open to anyone interested in using it. You can get curbside service whenever we are open. Give us a call and we’ll bring you your items. This can also be a nice option during cold and icy weather. 2) If you are feeling sick, we ask you wait until you're feeling healthy again before you come in.

We always look forward to serving the people in our community. That hasn’t changed during these difficult years and it won’t change moving forward.
