COVID Safety

In light of the rise of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, and taking into account new recommendations from local and federal health organizations, we are updating safety measures at the library. We are working hard to keep our community safe and healthy, and when you visit the library, we ask that you do the same.

Current Safety Precautions

  • Wear a mask. Masks are required for all visitors age 2 and older, and must fully cover your nose, mouth, and chin.
  • Food and drink are not allowed in the building. Please finish eating and drinking before you enter the library.
  • Be brief. Building capacity is limited, so we ask that you keep your visit as brief as possible to allow others entry. During busy times, we may enforce a time limit and there may be a line to enter the building.
  • Maintain a safe distance. Keep a distance of 6 feet whenever possible, and maintain a safe distance when interacting with staff.
  • Stay home if you’re sick. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. If you have items to pick up, call the library and we can extend your holds.

In-person programming for all ages has temporarily been suspended. We hope to resume in-person events later this winter. Our virtual events will continue as planned. For the latest news and updates, sign up for emails.

We encourage you to take advantage of Parking Lot Pickup. This contact-free system allows you to retrieve your holds without leaving the comfort of your car. Find full instructions and information for making an appointment:
