Please Note: Remote printing is not working at present, but we are working to have service restored. In-library printing is functioning as usual.

Lighting in the library will be upgraded to LED bulbs over the next several weeks. This will require certain parts of the building to be closed off for various periods during the day. This upgrade will make the library more energy efficient reducing operating costs and CO2 emissions. We regret any inconvenience during this period and hope for your understanding.

Use this page as your launching point for any kind of reference question.
