We are happy to announce that all our libraries, including partnership branches, are again open, and we are back to our full, pre-pandemic schedule. Next month we will even be expanding the hours at some of our locations.
You are welcome to come browse the stacks at any of libraries, and the services that were paused due to the pandemic—including computer use and 3D printing—have been restored.
We are grateful to all our patrons for their understanding and patience as we have worked to safely restore those services suspended due to the pandemic.
Masks are still required for all library guests ages 2 and up. Check our reopening page for the latest updates.
Join us for this bi-weekly, back-to-school Pro Tips program focused on learning, research, and citations. Each month, we will explore a different library resource, and you get to ask questions. This month we focus on HelpNow from Brainfuse. Get a taste of what's in store with this short video.
