Opening Announcement

Beginning January 25, the Library will be open to the public with limited capacity. We are committed to the welfare and safety of our patrons and staff.

All patrons must comply with the following public health practices:
  • Capacity is limited, so you may be asked to wait outside until there is sufficient space available in the department you wish to visit
  • All patrons over the age of two must wear a mask or face covering at all times when inside the Library.
  • Please remain at least six feet from other patrons and staff whenever possible.
