Library Closed to Public --- Curbside Check Out is now Available

The Summer Reading Program is still happening! Check it out on our Programs & Services page.

More about Curbside Check Out....

Beginning Monday, May 4 the Library will start curbside check out. Our building will remain closed to the public.

You can place a hold in a variety of ways:

Once your items have been checked out to you, they will be placed in a plastic bag with your last name on it.  A library staff member will notify you when your bag of items is ready to pick up.  Please allow one (1) business day for available holds to be processed. 

Bags will be placed on a cart outside the front door of the library.  When picking up your bag, please practice social/physical distance of at least 6 feet from others.  

More information about Curbside Check Out


The book drop is available 24/7. Returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being placed back into circulation.  Library items checked out before the closure are due back on June 30.


Please see the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services reopening schedule below for the current status of our programs and facilities. We are currently assessing all federal, state and local guidance as how to best proceed while keeping the health and safety of our community in mind.
