Dr Seuss Christmas unbranded

All of our branches are closed this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for Christmas.

We hope you have all the holidays books, movies and music you need; but, if you’re left in a lurch these next few days, we can still help. After all, our digital services are always available—even when our branches are closed.

That includes:

COVID-19 has made this year unpredictable. (I’m phrasing it mildly.) Simply put, this has been one of the strangest years in the library’s 200-year history. Thank you for your continued support. One thing that has not changed during this atypical year is that it’s a pleasure and privilege to serve our community. We hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
