As we mentioned earlier, the library closed tonight until further notice. We are not leaving you guys without your books. All of our programs are canceled or postponed and we will notify you all of those dates as we get everything worked out. This is a very stressful time for everyone and we appreciate your understanding in this matter. The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our main priority during this trying time but we want you to know we are still here.
