We will make every effort to assure that items we handle are as clean as we can make them.  Please keep in mind that the Library cannot guarantee germ-free physical materials.  You need to handle library materials with the same care you give to any other item you bring home for your family.

We sincerely regret that we cannot be open for full service during this troubling time.  We will reopen as soon as possible. 

In the meantime, please be safe.
