    Announcements
    In a few weeks, the library will be moving to a new way to book curbside pickups. The reservation system will be integrated into online catalog accounts and will allow patrons to book an appointment directly from the “Manage Your Account” library card portal. Users will need the account access information for the library card that the holds are placed on. Anyone who needs their card number or PIN should contact the library before the end of April.

    Also, patrons of all ages now can check out DVDs from the library’s collection. Previously, DVDs owned by the library could only be checked out on adult library cards.
