Snow Day

Due to the heavy snow, the Library will be closed today.

Fines will not be charged today so please don't try to make a trip to return items. Stay safe!

You can check out e-books, audiobooks from Media on Demand, magazines from Zinio, and renew and request items from the SWAN catalog no matter what the weather.

 
Book Donations

The Library is undergoing a renovation in the spring and work behind the scenes has already begun. The effects of this are mostly unseen but it does impact our Friends of the Library book sale in that we are unable to store donated items and are not accepting book donations until after the renovation is complete. If you have materials you'd like to donate, please consult this list of other organizations that can use your donations. Thank you for understanding!
