Reopening Hours

Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 11am – 4pm

Saturday 10am – 1pm

These hours are subject to change without notice.

Your Library experience will be different than pre-pandemic, now face coverings and social distancing are required at all times, no more than 10 patrons will be allowed in the building at one time for a limit of 30 minutes to browse the first floor only, pick up items, fax, make copies and use the computers. Public meeting rooms are not available and Library seating has been removed except at the public computers. These changes to our community gathering place we hope won’t last long and we can return to those days of reading the paper and chatting with friends.

We are grateful for your patience as we dealt with delays in construction and figured out ways to be a library while protecting the health of staff, the building and you.

Curbside will continue to be offered and a Grab and Go service from the vestibule will be added. Staff will continue to call when your items are ready for pickup, just let us know your preference to pick up items through curbside, grab and go or at the desk.

Public Computers

We will be using a reservation system for the computers. You can go online here https://communitylibrary.mvls.info/cgi-bin/reserve.cgi to reserve one of four computers available or request staff to place your reservation. Only one person will be allowed at a computer. You will have 30 minutes.
