Thank you for all your support since last March! You have embraced everything we were able to offer this year, despite constantly changing circumstances. I am so proud of my staff for their creativity and positivity during the pandemic. Read my latest Director’s Message to see a list of ways you have shown your library appreciation during a tough time.
We have more changes coming this month, but they are all GOOD NEWS!
The library is getting new carpet. We will be closed to the public April 2-17 as we finish the re-carpeting project we started in 2019. Curbside holds pickup will be available beginning Monday, April 5 (see details below).
New self-check stations are coming. Toward the end of April, state-of-the-art kiosks will be installed and ready for use.
Our hours are expanding! Starting April 19, we will go back to our regular hours: Monday-Thursday 9 am-9 pm, Friday-Saturday 10 am-6 pm.
As always, our staff will be here to assist you during these projects. We will have lots of online programs and resources continually available. We love serving our community and look forward to seeing you in the library soon!

"I have seen more changes in libraries in 46 years than most people can even imagine. Libraries have gone from 'shushing' people and only books available to check out, to having computers, technology, and programs (both educational and entertaining). We offer books, ebooks, movies, books on CD, games, internet computers, hot spots, and more. During COVID-19 the demand for library use has been even greater. We have adapted to virtual programs and pick-up kits. I think we have made a difference to our community."
