All of our branches are closed this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for Christmas. The HUB will be closed this Thursday (Dec. 23), as well.

Due to a current staffing shortage and COVID-19, the Main Branch will be open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Thursday the week of Dec. 27, and The HUB will be closed Thursday, Dec. 30. The other branches will still be open their regular hours those days.

Finally, our branches will be closed from Friday, Dec. 31, to Sunday, Jan. 2, in commemoration of New Year’s Day.

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:

We hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
