Elevator Out of Service

We hate to post this kind of notice, but it must be done.

To get a better elevator, our current one will be out of service starting next week, from October 23 to December 9. For those who can’t use the stairs, computers will be available on the ground floor and our staff will be happy to get any books/material you need from upstairs. We know this is inconvenient and we apologize if you are impacted. Thank you for understanding!

New Entry & Teen Room are Complete

The new entry was opened in September!  The teen room is also open, and several teen programs are held there each week.  The new fiction room will be open in a few weeks; then the new children’s space will be completed.  We’re almost there – thanks for hanging in there with us!
