“We regret any inconvenience today’s decision might cause, but we appreciate your understanding and always appreciate your support. We regret closing our doors but believe this is the most responsible course of action as we encourage customers and staff to use best practices and will shorten the run of COVID-19 in our community.

“We know our libraries are a valued resource for so many readers and supporters. We want to resume full operations as quickly and safely as possible. To that end, we will work closely with the health department, EMA and the mayor’s office and look forward to welcoming everyone back when we reopen.”
