Library News

Following advice from the Town and public health officials regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) the Library is currently closed to the public. 

But don’t worry…

  • All due dates of materials which were due after the library closed have been extended until 4.16.2020
  • Library cards expiration dates have also been extended for 60 days
  • Any fines accrued during this period will be waived upon check-in of materials
  • The library is not checking in materials as they are returned so there is no need to rush to return them at this time.

Online Resources

All access to Library materials and resources is through our eLibrary of digital materials. In order to accommodate increased use we have increased limits on our Hoopla collection and patrons may now check out 10 items per month instead of 5. We are also working to provide additional digital materials by adding to our OverDrive collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks.


Program Cancellations

Following advice from the Town and public health officials regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) not to hold non-essential meetings Library programs and meetings of other organizations have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. This should help reduce the risk of person-to-person exposure. Programs and meetings will resume when advised by public health officials that it is safe to do so.
