Shortened Library Hours Thursday, January 12

Due to the weather, the library will be open 10:00am-3:00pm on Thursday, January 12.

The library’s open hours during winter storms are based on staff members’ ability to travel safely to and from work. We will continue to evaluate recommendations from local transportation officials and media throughout the week. If we determine that we must change open hours on Friday, January 13, updates will be posted to this website,, Facebook, and Twitter.

Please do not worry about returning materials to the library while roads and walkways are hazardous. We will offer a grace period so that fines are not accrued during periods of inclement weather.

When the weather is nasty, stay inside and check out an ebook or audiobook!

Thank you for your patience—and be safe!
