Both Library Locations are now open!

UPDATE 7/19/21 – Though construction crews work to finish up work on our property, the Main Library – as well as the Branch – are now open.

  • Branch Library: Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday, 12pm to 5pm
  • Main Library: Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm

We have made it through pandemic restrictions and we are on the verge of having construction restrictions behind us.  However, we are still facing one remaining factor which will limit our services: staffing.

We are currently short staffed due to multiple retirements over the past year.  As we are able to bring new staff on board, our hours will continue to expand to pre-pandemic levels.
