'Our first stage of construction begins on Monday April 6! This part of the project includes remodeling the public restrooms, which means there will be no access to restrooms for the next several weeks. 

We will keep you updated on when they become available again!'                                        


Due to the library

renovation, the restrooms will be closed four to six weeks. The library is open during regular business hours.


To prepare for new construction, two of our outside parking lot lights have been removed. Please be aware that the parking lot will be darker during evening hours.


No morning Storytime, Toddlertime, or Rattle & Rhyme during the month of May. Storytimes resume June 3rd.
