November - April
We are changing our hours for just a little while.  We will be open on Mondays from 1 pm until 6 pm., 
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am until 5 pm.  Friday remains the same at 10- 4 and Saturday is the same at 10- 1.  Wednesdays will be the big difference, we will be closed all day.  
We will return to our regular hours May 1st.  
WE ARE OPEN. But.....
The Library is open but for the next two weeks our door is locked.  You may call ahead or you may simply come to the door and knock.  You may come inside to select your own books.  We will always offer curbside if you are more comfortable with that process.  Computers are available, printing and faxing is still 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.  
1st and 3rd Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m.
