Possible Disruptions Due to Staff Furloughs through December 31, 2020

Staff are the Libraries' greatest resource.

Due to furloughs of Library staff before the end of the calendar year, patrons may experience delays in some services, both online and in-person, including turnaround times for items requested.
elp requests may be responded to more slowly and it may take longer than usual to restore service interruptions. 

The Libraries will provide additional updates as they become available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We regret any impact this may have on you.
