As always, eMaterials are available 24/7. Visit and click on Online Resources to access them with a library card. Remember:

  • The Library is eliminating late fees. If you are sick, do not worry about returning your materials. Your health is of the utmost importance!
  • Patrons may continue to return materials at the outdoor materials return, either through the automated system or the manual materials return. Please keep board games and ukuleles at home until the Library re-opens.
  • The Library has suspended borrowing of Inter-Library Loan items. Many libraries across the nation have closed and borrowing materials from elsewhere is not possible at this time.
  • The Library cannot accept donations of materials until we re-open. Please do not leave boxes outside the Library doors.
