For the safety of our patrons and staff, we have decided to suspend curbside book checkout services as of today, Friday, March 27, 2020. If you've been called to pick up your reserves, please pick them up by 5:45 pm today. If you've missed today's pick up window, you will be able to pick them up between 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Any reserves not picked up after Sunday, March 29th, will be held until it is deemed safe to resume curbside services. In the meantime, our patrons will still have access to hoopla, our digital lending library, and our electronic resources on our online catalog.
