Due to the winter storm, the library will be closed on Saturday, January 29th. Staff will be available by phone or email to provide remote assistance during business hours.
All in-person programs, events, and meetings for January have been suspended due to the rising number of COVID-19 infections in the community.
All library visitors and employees are required to properly wear approved face masks in the building. Approved masks include surgical, N-95 and KN-95, or cloth masks and must completely cover your nose and mouth.
Thank you for helping to keep our community safe and our town buildings open!
