Library Services

Returning items: You can return items in the outside book drop or in the library. If you are unable to return checked out items, please keep them for now. We have extended all return deadlines to July 31st. Please contact us if you need to extend it further. 

Research help: We are providing online research help. 

Interlibrary Loan: You can receive digital articles and books, although some materials may take a little longer to find because of varying policies from the libraries we are borrowing from. 

Other library services: Starting Friday, May 1, the library will reopen. You can use the computers, study spaces, and check out materials. Please practice social distancing with each other and with library staff. 

Safety tips:

  • If you choose to come to the library, use caution and remain aware.
  • Keep a distance of 6 feet between individuals.
  • Wear a mask if you are able. 
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using any common equipment, such as computers or tables.
  • We are sanitizing everything multiple times per day, but we cannot guarantee that germs have not spread between cleanings.
