Library Services During the Pandemic
Here are some links that can help you make best use of the library during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting August 3, the library is open again for mostly-normal circulation. You no longer need an appointment to come in, browse, pick up, or return books. Books are still being quarantined for 24 hours after we receive them.
We are still offering curbside pickup of books and movies, if you don’t want to enter the building. You can find the complete information here: Curbside Pickup info
Starting August 3, we will offer 30-minute appointments for patrons to use our computers. There are some limits, and you can find the complete information here: Computer appointment info
For all your reading needs, we are focused right now on adding ebooks and audiobooks to the eZone. You can get books right on your phone, tablet, Kindle, or computer with nothing but your library card

Digital Reference Services
Even though we can’t meet in person, the reference librarian is still happy to take questions about any kind of information! If you have a tech question, need help using the eZone, need information or research assistance, there are a lot of ways to get in touch.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays, there is a reference librarian at the desk from 12pm to 6pm to take questions over the phone.
You can chat with us in realtime, via Facebook Messenger or the chat box on our website. Please be aware that this isn’t monitored constantly.
