A Word on Our Hours…

For the time being we intend to continue with Fall/Winter hours, even though the weather has become summer! We will be staying open for your convenience in checking out materials, but kids’ computers and video games will remain off for now, and toys will remain put away. We have a lot of new books and movies you and your family will enjoy, so see you at the library!

NEW! LIBRARY OPENING MAY 18

 

Good news! We open our doors on Monday, May 18! We would prefer that you wear a mask, as we will be when we interact with you. We ask that you touch only the books you intend to check out to help us with the amount of cleaning and disinfecting we must do. You can still browse the card catalog online and contact us with your choices if you prefer that.

If you have books, magazines, and/or DVDs that need to be returned our Book Drop is open so you can return them now. Please consider doing that so we can begin getting those materials ready to put back on our shelves. We are not putting materials directly back on the shelves when they are returned but are following guidelines from the CDC and ALA for handling of library materials.

There will NOT BE ACCESS to kids’ computers, video games, or toys at this time. Sorry kids!
See you at the library!

Please be respectful of others. If you are under self quarantine or isolation due to contact or illness, please do not check out or return library materials during this time.

Online Card Catalog

Online Card Catalog 

Want to see what books or authors we have in our library?

Our library has an online card catalog which you can use with handheld devices such as tablets and phones, as well as laptops and other computers. The URL is:

The link is not active in this post so you can more easily copy & paste. On the home page of our site you can find an active link on Search the Catalog about halfway down the left side of the page under Handy Links. You can search the catalog without your library card number, but for other functions you will need to sign in with you library card. If you don’t remember your number, give us a call, we’ll be happy to help you out!
