We’re Opening!!!
Beginning on Thursday, July 2, the library will be opening again for the public. The new library hours will be:
Tuesday and Wednesday 10:00 am-4:00 pm

There will be restrictions on place when entering the library:

Everyone must wear a face mask or covering. If you do not wear a face mask you may be asked to leave. Patrons who medically cannot wear a face mask will have their temperature taken.

In order to practice social distancing, there will only be 5 patrons permitted in the library at the same time. You may be asked to wait until others leave the library before you can enter.

There will be NO browsing for books or DVDs. You must ask a staff member to get materials for you. We will still have curbside service. You can call the library to request materials. When they are ready for pickup we will contact you and bring them to your car. You can also email requests to curbsideservice@ptd.net.

Due to COVID-19 and ongoing restrictions regarding groups of people, the Library will not be holding a book sale this year. Please DO NOT bring books to the Library that you wanted to donate for the book sale…we will just discard them.
