The Library’s hours are back!!

     Starting Sept 8th, the library will have its normal hours again.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10-5pm

Tuesday, Thursday        10-8pm

Saturday               10-2pm

We are still supplying curbside service for those who prefer not to come in, and Wi-Fi Service is available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.  It reaches to our parking lot, so that you may sit in your car or on our benches and enjoy our connections.

The Library has added several new databases to our research page, including Gale with encyclopedias for each grade level, and Newsbank with 3,500 newspapers, including our own Eagle.  Please check them out…they are an awesome resource.

We are following CDC guidelines for sanitizing loaned books, etc. We will require all patrons to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer upon entry, and have a temperature check along with a few quick questions. Floors will be marked so that all will adhere to social distancing.

We look forward to seeing you soon!



Please be mindful about overdue books, movies, etc. and return them. Fines are acruing again. Thank you for looking around for whatever you may still have checked out. Feel free to call us to check for you and be certain that your account is clear.
