  • We encourage patrons to keep their visits to 20 minutes in the building to allow more patrons to have an opportunity to use the library.  The Children’s Department is open for browsing only.
  • Patrons and staff are required to wear a mask at all times while inside the library, per the Governor’s mandate. Masks should fully cover the nose and mouth.  Children under 2 are exempt.
