New in October! The library now offers curbside printing!
Returns are accepted Friday & Saturday ONLY from 10am - 5pm, or until the book drop is full.
Please note: If the book drop fills up on Friday, it will be locked and not reopened until 10 am the following Friday so we can quarantine items safely. For safety, returns are quarantined and may not be “checked in”
for a week or more. No overdue fines are charged.

- Returns are accepted Fridays and Saturdays ONLY from 10 am - 5 pm or until the book drop is full. If you have items that do not fit in the book drop, please visit your library location during curbside pickup hours and staff can assist you with your returns. Please do not leave items if the book drop is locked or full. Because we quarantine returned materials, your items may not be “checked in” for a week or more. We do not charge fines for overdue materials.
