A Note From the Library
Do you still have your school library books from last Spring at your house? Good news! Starting 10/26 you can return your library books to the Book Drop in the vestibule between 8:00 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily. You must wear a mask when entering the building. Books will be placed into quarantine for 4 days and then they will be checked in and removed from your account. Please return all of your books so that we can reopen the library for curbside check out in November.
