Book reviews serve the community by helping others find the right reading materials. If you love to read and want to share your opinions, you can join our Teen Book Review Crew! All you need to do is read a book in the library's YA or Adult fiction collections, and do a write-up including a brief summary and your opinions. You'll submit all reviews and edits via email, making this a great opportunity for teens with busy schedules. Finished reviews will be published right here on the library's Book Review Blog on our website!

We have moved into Phase 3..

of our phased Re-open Plan.  On September 28, we welcomed the first patron in for a 45 minute computer appointment.  Social distancing requires us to limit public access to 2 computers and there are new procedures and restrictions.  

In spite of restrictions, allowing patrons back into the building is another step forward.  We anticipate opening up a COVID browsing library by the beginning of November with an open area for patrons of all ages to come in and browse new and selected materials from our larger collection.  Staff will be available to assist with requests and you can continue to place materials on hold for pickup.

We will continue to make foyer pickup available for those who don't want to come into the library.  Materials should still be returned into the exterior drop boxes.  You can check the complete list of instructions for more information.
