Library Closure, Online Resources & Coronavirus Information

Check here for updates about library materials, book drops, fees, and other library services affected during the closure.

DUE DATES
All materials currently checked out will have due dates extended until the shutdown is lifted.. No items will accrue fines during the shutdown. If you feel the need to return items to our book drop you may, but please feel free to keep them until we reopen.

OVERDUE FINES
All currently checked items have been automatically renewed so no overdue fees will accrue during the closure.

HOLDS
If you got a notice that we are holding  item(s) for you, they are  being kept on our holds shelf. When we reopen notices will go out  to those with holds asking that you let us know if you still want your hold(s).

LIBRARY CARD EXPIRATIONS
If your library card is about to expire, don’t worry. We have made adjustments so that your card will still work for our online resources such as eBooks and databases.

AFTER THE CLOSURE
There will be a grace period to return items when the library reopens.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to ensure the health of our community. 💙
