The Library will be temporarily CLOSED to the public UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Here are the some of the digital services you can access even while our buildings are closed:

WiFi at the library will remain turned on, so you can access it if you are in close proximity to the buildings.  The password is library1

Get digital materials — including eBooks, eMagazines, and eAudiobooks— through our website and corresponding apps for personal devices. Get children's ebooks and audiobooks as well!

Access educational and informative databases on our website through GALILEO.  The current password is cane.

About your library items and library card:

Hold onto all of the library materials you already have. Enjoy them at home and bring them back when we reopen. During the closure, the book drop at our location will be locked and you will be unable to return items in them. There will be no late fines for any of these items.

Please do not leave donations at the back door, as there will be no staff to accept them.
