  1. No matter what the circumstance, you do a great job ensuring we can still utilize our library! Thank you to all of your staff for all that you’re doing!!

  2. Are you really going to be open until 9PM on Friday and Saturday for people to pick-up holds, use computers, etc.?
    The library staff has done a great job serving the public during this pandemic. They have been very creative in providing services.

    1. Thanks Jane! That’s very kind of you to say. Alas, we will not be open until 9:00 PM on Friday and Saturday. That was a typo. We’ll be open until 5:00 PM on Friday and Saturday. I’ve edited the post to reflect that.

    1. Thanks for your question, Adam. The Library has been doing normal, in-person operations since January. We returned to our regular hours on March 15. Today we opened our new makerspace called The Forge. We’ve also recently opened our new Teen space, and this year’s NEA Big Read in the Falls is going strong. If there’s something we can help you with, feel free to stop in, or give us a call.
