For the past few weeks we have been actively monitoring the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and following the recommendations of federal, state and local authorities. The Library closure is in direct response to our commitment to work within health guidelines, to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to limit the exposure to our community. Please be assured, there are no indications that our locations are affected. These safety measures are out of an abundance of caution, not due to any known exposure.
