This Week at Your Library
May 13, 2021
The library will be closed on Monday, May 31, for Memorial Day. We are still doing curbside and delivery if you would prefer not to come inside. The statewide mask mandate has ended, but if you want to wear a mask in the library, we have masks available. Teens and children are encouraged to come in and use the computers and kid’s iPads. The meeting room is open for meetings, parties, etc. Please call the library for more information and availability. If you are a master gardener, will you please contact the library? We would like to have some gardening programs, and need a master gardener to lead them. Thanks! Thanks to the generosity of Les Fullerton’s family, we now have the Les Fullerton Memorial that is paying for InterLibrary Loan requests, as long as the money lasts. If you would like to contribute to this memorial to keep InterLibrary Loans free for our patrons, please let us know.
