Dear Patrons,


There's a lot of information out there right now about coronavirus and COVID-19. We have put together a list of resources from government sites and news outlets to help you prepare for and prevent illness.


Obviously we're a public library and not a medical agency, so you should still consult your doctor if you have questions or think you're getting sick. Please take care of yourself and your community!

Read a letter from our library director regarding the current library closure.

Check out our list of free and fun things to do at home, for all ages!

We have compiled some frequently asked questions about the library's response to COVID-19.
