"Grab-and-Go" is going strong! We've been delighted to see so many of our library regulars coming in for Grab-and-Go visits, taking advantage of our open doors to browse, say hello, and check out library materials. Stop by Tu-Fri, 11-2 or Sat 9-1 to browse and borrow from the adult, teen, and children’s circulating collections. Grab-and-Go visits are short (15-30 minutes), limited to 15 visitors at a time, and require a mask over nose and mouth and six-foot social distancing.
We plan to add services and hours progressively over the coming weeks, as regulations allow. For the latest information about hours and available services,visit our website.
