In order to keep our volunteers and patrons safe this is our new policy:

2. FACE COVERINGS are required for volunteers and patron safety.
3. Maintain 6 feet physical distance in all areas of the library.
4. No food or drink, including closed containers.
We are allowed 5 patrons into the library at one time, so please limit the time that you are in to give others a chance.
Those that do not wear a face covering will be limited to curbside service subject to volunteer availability.
While we are following the state re-opening safety guidelines, patrons should be aware that there is some risk in using shared spaces with shared materials. We cannot guarantee a perfectly safe space.

Annual library fundraising Events

Pie and Art Festival is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in August. This year’s event is on August 15, 2020 from 9 am till 1 pm.. A wide variety of homemade pies, sweet and savory, are baked and donated by local volunteers. 100% of the pie sale proceeds benefit the library’s endowment fund.
