NOTICE TO LIBRARY PATRONS

While face masks are recommended, social distancing will be required, public library hours will be expanded, patron capacity limits will be increased, and in-house library services will resume.

Overdrive Update

After September 30, 2021, the web certificate provider for Overdrive will no longer support certain older operating systems and browsers (learn more). This will result in a security warning which can be resolved by updating your operating system or browser version (if an update is available). Users on iOS 9 are most likely to be affected.
