Due to the utility construction creeping ever closer to the Main Library’s front door, we have decided that the time has come to close up the building in hopes of expediting the work through our parking lot.
Beginning Monday, June 21, ALL Library business will be done at the Branch Library location at 155 Wescott Road. Starting Monday, the Main Library will be CLOSED until further notice.
ALL checkouts, returns, hold pick-ups, etc. – any and all library business that needs to be done in person – will be at the Branch from June 21 until further notice. We are currently expecting the major work in our parking lot to last three weeks and will update the information here as we know more.
