|Go mobile! The Acorn Catalog app from Bibliomation, Inc. lets you search the library catalog, see what you have checked out or on hold, renew what you have checked out, and review your fines. You will need to sign into the app using your library card number and password. Bonus! Once you are signed in, the app can display your library card barcode, which you can use at the front desk if you forget to bring your library card with you. To download the free app, go to the Google Play or Apple App Store.|
|Find Us on:|
The library is back to full service hours! However, to ensure social distancing, we are limiting use of our public computers, and much of our soft seating has been removed. We encourge you to keep your visit brief so that more people can be accomodated. We will also be reinstating overdue fines beginning July 1. We have started autorenewal of checked out materials to help prevent those fines from accruing. Items eligible for renewal will autorenew on their due date as long as your card is in good standing and the item is not on reserve for another patron.
Some services may still be limited and masks and social distancing will be required.
