This article will continue to be updated as we receive information on how our library is being affected during this pandemic and how we are still serving you. The latest information will be the top bullet point(s) and older information will be towards the bottom of the list. Please check back periodically to stay up to date.

•For patrons who have items out, whether electronic or physical items, the computer system has automatically renewed them for you until further notice. Once libraries re-open, the due date will be one week after their re-open date. If you are done with your item before then, you may return it in our drop box, or if it is an electronic item, you can still "return" it on the app, or it will automatically disappear on the due date if it is not renewed again.
