Can I print, copy, or fax documents?

Yes!  Please see instructions for No-Contact print/copy/fax services here

What is being done to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at the Library?

We are quarantining all materials for 72 hours after they are returned, and then wiping all the plastic covers with bleach wipes.  Staff wear masks and are frequently washing/sanitizing their hands.  We are cleaning frequent touch points and surfaces (including the curbside pickup totes and drop box surfaces) frequently.

While we can't guarantee materials are 100% germ-free, we are following all state and local recommendations for libraries at this time to the very best of our knowledge and ability.
