Winter 2017

 Opening date

The countdown is on until we reopen on March 20th at our temporary location!  The outdoor return bins are now closed and all items will have to be returned after March 20th to our temporary location at 175 Mostar St. Please hold on to your library items between February 13-March 19th as we will not have any return areas while we are moving to our temporary location.

We will reopen at 175 Mostar St on March 20th and you will be able to return items again and check out new items until the expansion is complete. The temporary closure will not affect any of our digital services so you can still access eBooks, eAudio, online magazines, video, and more at any time.
