Services for You

Library-to-Go is still available at your library! The zero-contact process ensures everyone's safety. 

Read through this page to learn how to use this service and stay safe.

This pandemic has made us come together rallying our strength, the human spirit. Through all of this, we are re-emphasizing what is most important - our community and our team members. The health and safety of staff and our community remain our primary concern.

This is what we're doing:

  • Daily sanitizing of all high-touch surfaces
  • Full cleaning every evening
  • Staff wear masks, frequently wash and sanitize hands, and when necessary, wear gloves
  • No face to face interaction with the public
  • Borrowed items are placed outside the front doors on a table for patrons to pick up while following physical distancing practices
  • Returned items are quarantined for 7 days

Library-to-Go is a GO!

Read about how to return library items in the 24/7 Drop Box, the details about putting your 10 requests on Hold, and the Library-to-Go modified services. 

Please be patient.  This is new for all of us.
