What's New At Your Library

Library Closed for Holidays
The library will be closed the following days this holiday season:
  • Wednesday, December 24th & Thursday, December 25th
  • Wednesday, December 31st & Thursday, January 1st

We will be open with our regular hours on Friday, December 26th and Friday, January 2nd.

Extended Weekend Hours
We heard you! In our patron survey this summer, a lot of you told us that you wanted more hours on the weekends. As of December 5th, we are now open Fridays and Saturdays from 9am-6pm, and Sundays from 1pm to 6pm. We will be open 71 hours a week to serve you! We hope that you use the hours - the board will re-evaluate the hours in May of 2015 to determine if they are actually useful.

The hours switch is being accomplished by switching staffing schedules and does not cost the library's taxpayers any extra money. For more information, call us at 815-725-1715.
