      The library will have limited services starting March 1st - March 11th as we switch to the new library system. The library’s online catalog (OPAC) will be down starting Monday, February 29th at 4:00 p.m. Staff will be available to take phone calls and answer emails, but checking out books will be impacted during this time. Please call the library if you have questions, book requests or any other needs during this time, we will be available and will do our best to get books sent out as we can.
