WE ARE OPEN. But.....
The Library is open.  We are in Phase 3 of our library plan. We are open to the public with limitations/restrictions.  We are now at a occupancy limit of 6 besides our staff.  You will be hand sanitizing upon entrance and masks are required.   We do have masks available for use while in the library.  The Library Board has opted to operate at our full, regular hours as much as we possibly can.  There may be an instance or two where we need to close temporairly and we ask for your patience as we continue to adapt and operate within all the regulations that are currently in effect.    Remember, curbside service is always available.
Please continue to place ALL returns in the outside drop box for quarantine purposes. We are asking that there be NO DONATIONS placed in the drop box at this time.  We do not have the room for quarantining them and we can not have regularly scheduled book sales.  
Thank you for your patience, cooperation and understanding in this implementation of changes we are going through.
