When will the library offer more services?

We want to express our deepest appreciation to our community for your support throughout the pandemic. Your patience, care, and kindness has meant more to us than we can put into words and we are confident that our community is stronger than ever.

As we "return to normal", we are focusing first on returning core services and will continue to expand offerings over the next few months. We recognize that different people have different levels of comfort about relaxing precautions. Based on what we know, we are doing our best to balance the needs of everyone in our community.

The comfort of all families is important to us as we wait for vaccine availability for ages 4 & under (5-11 can now get the vaccine). Outdoor and virtual events are planned throughout the winter that will allow us to more easily socially distance and accommodate as many families as possible. Some indoor events may be offered this winter, as opportunities arise. 

Services and amenities that remain temporarily unavailable include community recycling and coffee service.
