In-person library use

As COVID case numbers in our community fluctuate, we’ll adjust in-person services accordingly to serve community needs and ensure the health and safety of our patrons and staff. Check here to see what in-person and online services the Library is currently offering.


Curbside pickup

We are offering curbside pickup library patrons. Visit our Curbside Pickup page for more information about how curbside pickup works, how to request items, how to send something to the library printer, and how to request a bundle of “curbside surprise” books or movies.



Online resources

Wireless access

  • Our wifi is on and accessible from outside the building from 4 am – 10 pm. For the best signal, park in the small parking lot next to the building on Elm St or in our large back parking lot near the building. Use caution and follow social distancing guidelines when using the library wifi.

Returning books and library materials

  • The outside bookdrop is open for returns 24/7.
  • The bookdrop is located near the handicap parking spaces in the parking lot behind the library.
  • If you need to return kits, artwork, or other items that won’t fit in the bookdrop, please call the library to drop off items during library hours.
  • Your returned items will still be on your account for at least 72 hours while we leave them in quarantine before checking them in.
