ReOpening Plans & Updates

ReOpening Plans & Updates

3/19/2021 Update: The library continues to be open to the public, we have tables with one chair, we have other seating placed six feet apart as well. We will keep the appointments for the computers to keep the distancing, and the appointments for the Children's Room (one family per hour), and 1 person in the quiet study room. No browsing appointments are necessary. The Health Department (CRAHD) and the Town's Emergency management is requiring the library to contact trace still, so please stop by the main desk for that. No inside, in-person programs at this time. We will begin soon with outside programs on the lawn.
