We encourage patrons to use self-checkout machines at each location. Library staff are available for library card questions, card renewals, payments, and assistance with hold requests.

We do our best to clean frequently-touched surfaces throughout the day. However, no public space is completely risk-free. We encourage patrons to:

  • Unvaccinated persons are required to use a face-covering inside the library. Vaccinated persons may mask or not, according to personal preference.
