  What else do I need to know?

The library encourages patrons and staff to wear a mask when in the library to help protect others from getting COVID-19. We also ask that you sanitize or wash your hands before entering the main part of the library and also before leaving the library. We will have several locations in the lobby that has sanitizer available to use while at the library. We are asking that you practice social distancing while in the library building.

 For the safety of library staff and your neighbors, we ask that you do not use the library as a gathering place at this time. We are happy to assist you to find and retrieve materials, answer reference questions and offer short term computer use. Thank you for keeping our town safe!
