PLEASE READ:

Due to the fact that we are working with a partial staff, and because we have to do a 72 hour quarantine and sanitize each book/material left in the book drop before we check it in and shelve it, we are asking that you PLEASE KEEP your book/dvds/audiobooks at this time. We need to get caught up in this process. There are NO fines OR LATE fees right now. Most items should have automatically renewed until March 30th. If we do not open by the 30th, another 2 week extension will be granted. We are working with a limited number of gloves and disinfectant. So, keeping your materials until further notice is MUCH appreciated.
