During the COVID-19 crisis: Please email the Library Director directly to inquire about obtaining a temporary library card that would provide access to the library’s digital resources during the Governor’s shelter-in-place Executive Order. This temporary card would be available to residents in our library’s taxing district and would be able to be converted, following normal guidelines, to a physical card once the order is lifted.
