Due to the accelerated spread of COVID-19 in our state, the library will not be staffed for an undetermined amount of time. we will keep you informed of changes to our status. During this time the following will be in place:

. All items originally due during this time have been extended to April 25 and we will reevaluate this date if we are not open by that time, so don't worry about renewing or returning right now.

. We are not sure how often the book drop will be emptied, so if possible please do not return your items until we reopen. Do not return items to the book drop if it is overflowing as we cannot guarantee that you will not be charged to replace lost or damaged materials.

. You are welcome to place holds, but they will not be available for pick-up right until after we reopen to the public. We will hold all items for you until we reopen, so keep your hold notices as a reminder and ignore the "pick up by" date. .
