SERVICES PROVIDED DURING OUR CLOSURE:

 

WE’LL STILL BE AVAILABLE:

The Librarian will be available by phone 466-5408 (leave a message and we’ll will get back to you as soon as possible), or by email to answer your questions, help you renew/reserve items, and assist you in using our online resources, such as Downloadable audio and ebooks, Ebsco databases, and our online collection. You may need a username and password if you don’t already have them. We will send them to you at your request.

 

BOOK BUNDLES: We will put together a selection of materials of your likes and wants. Tell us your favorite books, and we can find read-alikes that we think you will enjoy. Movies, puzzles, and music CDs can also be included. This includes Bundles for children.

 

CURBSIDE PICKUP:

Once you call in or email a request for materials, we will arrange a time for you to pick them up curbside. For those who are homebound, we will arrange to have them delivered to you.
