Following town guidelines, due to the spiking number of COVID cases in the community, library staff will be working in two teams on alternate weeks starting January 3, 2022. With fewer staff on hand, we have no option but to temporarily reduce the hours the library is open.
Updated Library Hours:
Monday - Thursday – 9 am – 5 pm
Friday – 10 am – 5 pm
Saturday – 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday – 1 pm – 5 pm
Starting Monday, January 10, 2022, the library is temporarily requesting that patrons limit their visits to the library to no more than 30 minutes at a time. Group study rooms will not be usable during this time, but public PCs will still be available for 30 minute sessions.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this challenging time.
