Beginning on Monday, April 12th, 2021, the libraries will be resuming their regular business hours and extending the time limits for library visitors. 

The libraries have been closing an hour early for cleaning and sanitizing. As of Monday, April 12th the libraries will resume their regular hours which can be found on the Locations and Hours page of our website. The 30-minute time limit will be extended to 60-minutes. Library visitors will be able to use the library for 60 minutes each visit. Extensions to the 60 minutes may be granted for activities related to job seeking, education, and health. 
Social distancing guidelines are still in effect. Face coverings that go above the nose are required to enter the buildings and temperature checks are strongly encouraged.
