The following are the restrictions for allowing patrons inside the building:

  • We will be open from 11-5 Monday - Friday and Saturday 11-2

  • Everyone over the age of two MUST WEAR A MASK!

  • Social distancing is required.

  • Limit of only 10 patrons inside at a time.

  • Limit your time in the library to 1/2 hour. There will be no chairs in the library, as it is a strictly in and out service.
