The Library is closed due to the COVID-19 Outbreak.

Online access will continue, which requires a library card number. If you do not have a library card number please register here and you will be emailed a number.

We will keep you updated as events unfold. We will continue to work closely with the town to ensure the safety of all our patrons, and we hope that everyone continues to be healthy.
