Important Updates: Main Library Hours and the New Children’s Library

First we wanted to share with you this exciting news - The new Children’s Library, Garden, and Commons have opened to the public on January 5, 2022 as planned! A limited selection of Children’s books are available for browsing and borrowing as we are waiting for new shelving to arrive.

In response to the current surge of COVID-19 cases in the community, the Library has made some temporary changes to its services -

  • Reduced Main Library Hours: The new hours are 10-6 (Mon.), 9-6 (Tues. through Fri.), and 9-5 (Sat.). The new Children’s Library closes 15 minutes earlier to aid staff in expanded closing duties. The hours for Special Collections and the Fowler Branch remain unchanged. Both locations are closed on Sundays.
  • Eating is not permitted in the Library at present, including the new Commons.
  • Meeting/Study Rooms are only available for individuals on a walk-in basis for up to two hours per use. Group reservations are not permitted at this time.
  • All programs are virtual until further notice. See the Library Event Calendar for up-to-date information.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
