Due Dates Extended Through June 30

Due dates for currently checked-out library materials have been extended through June 30, 2020

Since staff are not able to enter the building to check in materials, any books returned will continue to show as "checked out" on your account until the library reopens. Patrons will not be charged overdue fines for any items that had due dates during our library closure. If you receive any notices, including for MeLCat items, please know that the fees will be waived following this closure.

If you have a library account, you should be able to access all of our Digital Library Collections, regardless of any current fines.
