Help us help keep our community safe!

Children... We encourage you to visit us at the library, make your selections, check them out and take them home after a 15 minute visit to enjoy them!

Parents... All patrons are encouraged to keep their visits to 15 minutes, including children.  Before visiting us at the library, determine the best way for your child to get home following a limited visit. We discourage you from just dropping your child(ren) off without a plan. Consider our curb-side service. Order early and pick up at the curb later!




Curbside Pick-up continues at your local library! Call in your order, give us time to pull your materials and we will bring them to you in your car or you can come into the library at your convenience to pick them up.
