What do I do about returning items?

The library’s drop box is now open.  If you are unable to drop items off, don’t worry, fines are still temporarily suspended.

What if I miss my time-slot?

Call if you are going to be late or if you cannot make it.  It may take us a few minutes to accommodate you if we are taking care of another patron first.  If you cannot make it, we will return your items to the hold shelf and you can call to reschedule your pickup.

Is the library building open?

The library building is not open to the public at the moment.

What about using the computers?

The computers are not available at this time.  The WiFi is available and can be used outside of the building.

What are you doing to protect the safety of the patrons and staff?

Safety is our top concern.  Curbside pickup provides maximum social distancing while still making items available to patrons. Staff will wear masks and have been sanitizing materials as needed.
