The health of our patrons and library staff is our greatest concern.

We continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments along with the responses by our local/state organizations and other libraries in order to provide the utmost care and service to our patrons. For more up-to-date information on COVID-19 please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus

The library continues to offer virtual programming on our Facebook & Instagram pages.


The library’s website will be updated with new service developments as we cautiously move through our phased reopening guidelines, which began with contactless curbside pickup on 6/22/20 , continued with limited in person service on 7/14/20 and expanded service hours to include Saturdays, resuming on 9/12/20.

If you have any questions, please email or call the library at 201 768-4784.
