“This week is National Library Week and we’re pleased to share news that we will soon be offering curbside pickup services,” said Library Director Amy Salminen. “I’m proud of our team for being able to adapt during this unprecedented time to offer innovative online programs. We’ve also been able to promote the incredible digital resources that the library has to offer.”

The library is preparing signage for curbside services. Markers for social distancing will be placed on the sidewalk for people to follow. Returned materials should be delivered to the book drop on the north side of the library building.
