* WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: If it’s snowy, and particularly if it’s icy, please call the Library @ 492-3410 during library hours to see if we’re open. If you get a recording, no one has come in to staff. (Although some of our trustees and volunteers live nearby, others live on higher terrain, often with tricky driveways, and we encourage them to stay home!)
All scheduled programs are postponed until further notice
