   For the duration of the State of Emergency it is acceptable to return your DVDs in the Drop Box on the front porch.
   Our phone number is 468-2373. 
You can email your request to
You can check if we have a book on our online catalog to the left of the page.

  The Governor's original stay-at-home order expires June 10. The Library Board will take that into account when they set the new opening date.
