Fall appears to have arrived and here at the Library, we are moving forward, albeit differently than what we are accustomed to. We are continuing to offer Contactless book pickup in the Library's entryway during our open hours, as well as allowing a maximum of 4 people at a time inside the Library for a time limit of 30 minutes.
Going forward: Until we can safely host In-Person Story and Craft Times for kids, we will provide one Take and Make Craft packet each month (available mid-month)
