COVID-19 Response & Reopening

Starting in June 2021, the Library is lifting many restrictions that were in place during the height of the pandemic. 

We look forward to seeing you back in the Library, and taking advantage of everything we have to offer!

Masks & Social Distancing

The Library requires staff and visitors to wear masks and observe six feet of physical distance while inside the building.

This decision is out of respect for our younger patrons who are not yet vaccinated and are required to continue to follow these guidelines.

Patrons who are unable or unwilling to comply with our safety measures will not be allowed entry but are welcome to continue to use our many contactless services, including our extensive collections of eBooks and eAudiobooks, movies and shows, online learning services, personalized recommendations, curbside pickup, and home delivery.

Children Under 14

Due to our ongoing concerns for the health and welfare of children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated, we continue to limit unattended children under 14.

No one under age 14 may enter the Library without a parent, guardian or other responsible adult who will supervise their behavior while in the Library.

Occupancy & Time Limits Lifted
Most Services Return to Normal

Starting June 23, 2021, we increased occupancy in the building to 250 individuals at once.  We installed a digital occupancy counter in the rear entrance vestibule so you can view the current occupancy when you arrive.  We ask that you not enter if the occupancy is above 250 and wait until other patrons exit the building before entering. 

Starting Wednesday, June 23, we have removed the time limits placed in effect during the pandemic.  You are welcome to stay longer than one hour and tables and chairs are available throughout the Library.

Starting June 23, quite study rooms, public PCs, copiers, printers and scanner are fully available for public use.

Returning Borrowed Items

Borrowed items must be returned in the outside book drop.
