News Release

13 libraries with curbside service, 2 libraries with limited opening.

Library updates. Books. 
 

Many library buildings are closed until further notice as a precaution to
help prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Some
libraries offer curbside service, and some have limited opening. Our
libraries are not accepting item donations at this time. Our delivery
service, Books By Mail is available for those who are disabled
and cannot physically visit the library to get books.

Items will be automatically renewed until further notice. As of
March 16, 2020, late fees for library items are not being charged
to your account. All previous fines and fees will remain.

Note: Presidential Primary Preference elections (early voting and
election day) still occurred in March at our designated libraries.
