Library Service Updates

The library is currently offering daily CURBSIDE PICKUP (details below). The building is open by APPOINTMENT for desktop computer use and in-person browsing. Please call the library for details and availability.

The book return box at the top of the ramp is open 24 hours for returns. Returned materials will be quarantined a minimum of 24 hours so you may still see them on your account for a couple of days after returning them. No fines will be charged for the quarantine days.

We are not accepting book donations at this time.

Effective April 5th, we are returning to 3 week due dates for most books, 1 week for rental books, 1 week for new dvds, and 3 weeks for regular dvds.

Because medical professionals couldn't identify the illness, the girls were believed to be possessed. Did the girls bring on the trouble themselves, or was the community casting black magic across the town?
